Still at 35 bucks, the new and improved Raspberry Pi 2 (model B only) features an ArmV7 quad @900 MHz, instead of the previous ArmV6 single-core @700 MHz. That should enable you to boot Ubuntu or XMBC, ... sorry, Kodi, before your TV actually booted. Apart from the additional CPU horsepower, the GPU is the same and the total configuration is pretty much similar. This little pie carries 4 USB ports, micro-SD slot, HDMI, analog audio, Ethernet and 17 GPIO pins for connecting even geekier gadgets. Of course the camera connection is also still there.
