Raspberry Pi alternatives: The most recent boards available to buy

Raspberry Pi with a twist

As versatile as the $35 Raspberry Pi is, it is just one of many single-board computers available to buy today.

The Pi strikes a fine balance between performance, price, and usability, but leaves plenty of room for other boards to tweak that formula.

This Fall has seen the release of a swathe of new boards, some ramping up the price to add PC-like features -- such support for fast SSD storage and Intel Core processors -- while others trim specs to cut costs.

These boards are generally aimed at software developers, hardware hackers and tech enthusiasts working on projects like home media servers. However, it's worth pointing out that few boards are as accessible or offer the same breadth of stable software as the Pi.
