The new Raspberry PI 3 – Worth an upgrade?

Raspberry PI 2 was a great improvement over the version 1. However, we did have to attach external USB WiFi dongles to connect wirelessly. The Raspberry PI 3 offers an upgrade from 32 bit to a 64 bit ARM Cortex A-53 CPU, faster clock speed of 1.2 GHz over Raspberry PI 2’s 1GHz. But I think the best bit is that it adds a couple of very useful peripherals, it gives us on board N-WiFi and Bluetooth. This will free up atleast one more USB port for me. I wish they had upgraded RAM to 2GB atleast, but i think that was saved for the next revision 🙂
