The Raspberry Pi Model B+ with 512 MB of RAM is a little PC that can be used like any other computer. USB mice and keyboard compatible with ethernet connectivity and high-definition video capabilities. The Raspberry Pi B+ uses a microSD card reader to boot off and store to a microSD card.

If you're trying to figure out whether you should use this microPC or the Arduino UNO, we recommend you select the Raspberry Pi if you feel the need to have a full PC with an Operating System, if all you're looking for is a simple robotics project, the Arduino UNO will be simpler for beginners. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.

In summary, the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ is an upgraded version of the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B with the same chipset and RAM but the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ has more I/O pins, 4 USB ports as opposed to 2 and microSD card storage as opposed to standard sized SD Card storage. The newest version of the Raspberry Pi is currently the Raspberry Pi 4: Model B.

Please note, if you want to use RCA output as opposed to HDMI to hook up to your TV or monitor, the Raspberry Pi B+ does not support RCA. Use an HDMI to VGA adapter if possible or purchase the Raspberry Pi Model B if you must have RCA.
