$25 Raspberry Pi Model A now available in U.S. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has confirmed today that its $25 Model A board is now available for purchase via reseller Allied Electronics.
Until this week, only the Model B, which costs $35 and includes ethernet, had been available to U.S. and UK buyers.

The cheaper model was created with lower power consumption in mind, and indeed uses 30 percent less power than the B. It also includes half the RAM of the B, only one USB port (compared to 2), and no ethernet.

Model A sales began in Europe in February, and the Foundation says sales have been a "few thousand a week."

The Foundation recently sold its 1 millionth Model B board in January.
