New product: Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ on sale now at $25 – Raspberry Pi

With the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ you can now get the 1.4GHz clock speed, 5GHz wireless networking and improved thermals of Raspberry Pi 3B+ in a smaller form factor.
By halving the RAM to 256MB, and removing the USB hub and Ethernet controller, the board could be made cheaper and smaller. For communicatons have dual-band 802.11ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2/BLE.

    Raspberry Pi Foundation announces $25 Pi 3 Model A+, with a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU but less RAM and USB ports than the $35 Model B+ —

    Raspberry Pi made a cheaper version of its most powerful PC
    The $25 Pi 3 Model A+

    The new model, called the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+, uses the same quad-core 1.4GHz Broadcom processor as the high-end Model B+. It also has the same support for Bluetooth 4.2 as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi, making it easy to use anywhere there’s a connection.

    But a few specs are being cut back to account for the $10 price reduction. There’s no longer an Ethernet port (you have to use Wi-Fi), there’s only 512MB of RAM instead of 1GB, and it drops to just one USB 2.0 port instead of four.

    The Pi 3 A+ is far from Raspberry Pi’s cheapest computer — that’d still be the $5 Pi Zero

    Is the new Raspberry Pi 3A+ worth its money? Any hidden Flaws?

    The new Raspberry Pi 3A+ is a stripped down and cheaper version of the flagship RPI 3B+. Is it worth the money? Where are the things you have to pay attention? Comparison to Raspberry Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi 3B+

    RPi 3B+ boards are frequently on sale for ~$29. Unless space is a premium, or if the 3A+ can run with significantly less power, or if you need to buy a lot of them, it’s hard to make a strong case for this new version.
