Instead, the headline feature is an increased number of USB ports (with the DIY computer now housing four of the connections), while the full-fat SD card slot has been swapped out for a more-compact microSD option. The analogue and composite video connector has been swapped out too with a four-pole connector in its place. Still using a Broadcom chip with 512MB of memory, the B+ makes use of improved power management to power a higher number of connected peripherals at once. Available to buy now. [Raspberry Pi]
