Raspberry Pi Announcment

The Pi 2 has a new Broadcom chip, a quad core 900MHz Cortex-A7. It also has 1GB of RAM, and keeps the same port layout as the B+ model. Taking the middle ground of several benchmarks, it's roughly six times as fast as 700MHz single core ARMv6 in the first Raspberry Pi, and double the RAM of the B+ model released last July.

The Pi 2 will also support Windows 10, and it will be available for free.

I just bought a B+ last week, since it was my understanding that the Pi wouldn't get updated again for a long time.

Anyone else have a Pi, or thinking about getting the v2?

    What kind of input / outputs can you get on one of these? Is there a built in voltage in / out system, or would that be secondary?

    I am really tempted to buy one. Just set-up the one pi B+ I could find as a retro emulator; these things are too easy to misplace.
