PI 2 New Model Sweet little piece of HW. Recommend this as well as the previous version. June 1, 2015
Better than sliced bread! How can you resist a $35 computer... It is crazy what you can do with this thing. May 28, 2015
A major leap from my B+ I loaded Raspian on it and it is quick! I have a B+ that I use as a music server with XBMC interfaced with my Crestron system. It works fine but it labors under load, for example compiles. Granted once I had XBMC running, the B+ was fine. But the Rpi2 is a big step up in performance. I don't have any particular project plan for it, I might try to get the Hercules 390 emulator on it just for amusement. The HDMI socket is sensitive but this may in fact be the fault of my cable. In any case, once I got it configured, I just use vnc. I use a Wifi USB as well as wired depending upon where I am working on it. I also put in a Bluetooth Wifi USB, not sure what I will use it for but I saw a fellow integrated a Wii controller so that could be amusing. I also got a GertBoard, again no particular plan but something may come to mind. $35? Is there a price/performance question here? May 22, 2015
RPi 2 - The sequel Better than the original, the raspberry pi 2 with it's upgraded hardware has a lot of potential for the hobbyist and professional alike. I have found them to be great little machines for both. May 22, 2015
Awesome upgrade Finally got my hands on the new pi, and I cant believe the difference. This edition makes all the older distros of pi run like a beast. Looking forward to seeing what new projects come out for this new upgraded model. May 22, 2015

I can't get the website to give me a shipping cost and I'm trying to decide between Newark and MCM.

MCM's cheapest shipping is $9.99 which is way too much to ship something this small. Can send it USPS Priority Mail for 5.25 anywhere in the US.

A: 
The beauty of the Pi family is that you decide on what you are going to do with it. No power supply comes with the Pi because there are several ways to power it. I like portability so I use a power pack to run my Pi with all its accessories. Other people will use theirs as a server or desktop computer so they'll use a microUSB charger. Lastly, you'll have those who want super portability so they'll wrap up four or six AA batteries or use a solar charger. It's entirely up to you to figure out what you are going to do with the Pi.
Since I use my Pi for different projects, I have multiple power sources. Anything will work as long as it puts out 5volts dc and 600mA - 1800mAs. Just don't go cheap on your power source. Get one that provides a steady 5v and 1500mAs.

It doesn't come with one. You'll want to find a Micro USB power adapter of 1A (5 Watts) or greater. There's a red light on the Pi 2 that will go out if it doesn't get enough power, which will give you a good idea of whether your power adapter will work for it.

It does not come with a power supply. You will have to provide your own Micro USB power. Depending on what you want to use the device for, the supply you use to recharge your phone may be sufficient (at least for tests), but in the long run, you may want to get a dedicated supply.

A: 
The new Pi 2 is quite energy efficient even though it is using a quadcore processor. The specs call for 5V dc with 600mA - 1800mA, which is only 100 more mAs more than the B+. I don't recommend anything less than 5Vs and 2000mA due to the four USB ports. Most USB devices run off of 5 volts and they can suck down your power quickly.
Don't use a cell phone microUSB charger for power. Most phone chargers don't put out enough volts or amps to operate the Pi 2 correctly. If you are going to use a charger, use a tablet charger.

A: 
This power supply is made specifically for the Pi, and will work well for the Pi 2. Voltage should be good up to the rated current of 2 amps. Note that the ripple rating is 300mv p-p. The price is good for a power supply of this rating, but do be careful of the handling charge. That makes it much less attractive.

You also need to get a usb charger/power supply with at least 2 amp and the cable to go from that USB charger to a micro USB power port on the RPI 2 B+. Also you need to connect a wifi dongle or antenna for wifi capability.

A: 
Short list:
1. MicroSD card, I would recommend 8Gb or larger depending on what you plan to do on it. Try Openelec media center
2. Power Supply - make sure you buy one that is greater than 1amp, Some cheap USB phone chargers will work, but they don't have enough amps and it will cause irratic behavior on the RPi.
3. Case - I would recommend the Kootek brand. They have a nice clean designed case for the RPi2

Other stuff you will need to get it going that you probably already have: keyboard, mouse, monitor, HDMI cable or HDMI adapter.

A: 
I know it's bad manners to answer a question with a question but I need to know what you want to do with your Pi. Or better yet, you need to know what you want to do with your Pi. Think of the device as a computer that can do way more. A basic computer needs a screen, a power supply, an input device (keyboard or touch screen), maybe a network connection (Rj45 jack or WiFi) and storage (microSD card or USB thumbdrive). But this isn't your basic computer. You can add a small touch screen that sits on the 40 pin GPIO slot for about $35. Buy one that is at least 3.5 inches so it shows the whole desktop. Smaller screens don't seem to allow this.
Power is provided through the mini USB jack. Most people recommend a solid 5V and 1a. I use an Anker portable power pack that can jump start a car (not really). The Anker puts out as much juice as the device asks for up to 12V and up to 23000ma. Since the Pi has power management hardware built into the card, the Anker and device work together to provide optimal power consumption. If you decide to use a phone charger (don't) make sure (please don't) the power charger can put out (bad bad idea) at least 5V and 1a. Use a tablet charger instead that puts out 2a with 5V.
Next comes the keyboard. The Pi has four USB ports. That is four slots to add in a USB keyboard, a mouse, a WiFi adapter, and a thumb drive even before you think about adding in a powered USB hub. What I did was buy a portable Bluetooth keyboard with a touchpad and laser built in. Yes, a laser. It's red and it's cool. Just don't expect to type a long letter on it cause it is small. I'm all about portability.
So break out your calculator and add up the cost of these accessories. You don't need a screen because you can remote in (headless) using either Putty (CLI) or OpenVNC (GUI). You can use the HDMI out to connect it to a TV or a monitor or you can use the audio/video out for PAL. Just know that the four pole jack is a strange configuration.
My Anker power pack cost me $19. The portable keyboard/touchscreen/laser cost $15. The touch screen costs $35 without shipping. My WiFi with antenna cost another $15.
If you are going to do robotics, then look at microcontroller and servo controllers. Those can cost $20 upwards. The actual motors get expensive. If you are planning on building a robot army to take over the world, you'll need to take out a second mortgage on your home.
But the basic accessories all depend on what you plan on doing with your Pi. Don't worry, you don't have to make that decision just yet. The Pi can always be reconfigured to make new things, unlike a computer or a smartphone. There are tons of things you can do with the Pi.

A: 
Besides the Raspberry Pi 2, you'll need a couple of things:

MicroSD card (I recommend a fast Class 10 one. I got a 32GB and I believe that is the largest officially supported). You download (for free) the OS of your choice following the instructions on the Raspberry Pi Downloads area of their site.

MicroUSB charger. Most Android phones use this type. Should be 5V which is what most of them are anyway. For remote projects you can even power it with AA batteries and other things, just be sure to read the specifics online.

HDMI cable (full size male to male) like you'd use to connect a DVD or bluray player to a monitor or TV)

USB keyboard (try to avoid models that light up the keys and that will draw extra power and it may cause issues for you. It won't hurt anything but it will limit what all you can plug in to the Pi2.

USB mouse

You can get internet to it via a wired Ethernet port or via a wireless USB dongle. I recently got a model (Panda 300Mbps Wireless-N USB Adapter w/ WPS button) on Amazon for $17 and it works great. It's also the fastest wireless one you'll find. 300Mbs. Also keep in mind that wireless draws power as well, so depending on your particular setup you need to be aware of all of the devices plugged directly into the Pi2. If you ever run into an issue where something doesn't work you likely just need to use a powered hub with the Pi2 to help provide extra power to all of the devices.

Eventually you'll want a case for it too. There are tons to choose from online (existing Model B+ RPi cases work with this model too) and I tried one out but it wasn't a good design. So I recently got another one (SunFounder 1000C2 Raspberry Pi Clear Acrylic Case for Model B+) and love it. It fits very securely in this and looks great. Very protective how it is mounted.

I attached a photo of mine all mounted in the case, along with 4 small sugru feet attached on the bottom corners to make it sit nice and firm on smooth surfaces.

A: 
No comparison. The B+ is still running the same processor and memory as the older RPi but it does have extra USB ports and more GPIO ports than the older version. The RPi 2 on the other hand has a quad core 900 mhz processor VS a 700 mhz single core, 1 gig of SDRAM memory VS 512 and keeps the four USB and extra GPIO ports. There are a few other details, but these are the main ones.

A: 
The Pi 2 is a major upgrade to the Pi family. This new device has a Broadcom ARM (RISC) Cortex A7 Quadcore processor. The previous Pi's have all had ARM processors but they've all been single core processors. The new A7 processor is 4 times faster because it is using four cores. The new image software also takes advantage of the 64 bit structure to increase the overall speed by another 2 times.
The Pi 2 also has twice the amount of ram, 1 gig instead of previous Pi's that were 512 meg and below. This means that certain OS's can actually be loaded into the system ram (or at least the kernel and major components). Again, this adds speed and power to the new Pi 2.
The overall design hasn't been changed as much as it's been tweaked to maximize power consumption and efficiency. Heat build up is a thing of the past thanks to onboard power management and the chip design. This means less electrical power is wasted which is great for us portable type users. It is also nice that you don't really need to add heat sinks or fans which can use up more electrical power or take up additional room.
I've seen one design where the whole Pi 2 is sealed up for underwater use. No excessive heat build up.
The same configuration from the Pi B+ was used so you'll find the same USB ports, HDMI, 40 pin GPIO so on in roughly the same locations.
A Pi 2 is now competing directly with your tablet, your smart phone and your desktop but it's a lot more fun. This is not a toy anymore. The Pi 2 is computer on a board that cost $35. Make sure you update your image so that you are taking advantage of the quadcore 64bit processor.

A: 
There are several companies that offer bundles with the Pi 2, but I don't know if Newark will be carrying them or not.

A quick search on the Internet should get you started.

No, it is a different processor, which needs a different compiled version of the software.

A: 
Provided on your old Pi you do the following commands:

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo rpi-update

...then your NOOBS card should get the new kernel and should boot and work fine.

A: 
NOOBs has been updated. DL the newest version, just as you would when you first got your Pi. This is a whole different processor, a powerful sucker. Keep that older NOOB card for your older Pi and get a nice fast 64Gig class 10 card from Amazon. In fact, don't even bother with the NOOB image. Download whatever image suites your needs. LibreOffice just updated so ya might as well update everything else. Kali just update last week to version 1.10.
Celebrate with a new card and an new image for your new Pi 2. Treat yourself.

A: 
Assuming it is a MicroSD card, then yes it will. You'll want to upgrade to the latest version once you swap the card over to the new RPi2 via:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo rpi-update

The previous NOOBS cards will not work in the Pi-2MODB. If you have an old NOOBS card, you will need to update the OS. The sku for the NOOBS card for Pi-2-MODB is 38Y6470

Google it to find some ideas. Adafruit's site has a great list. The best use I found so far is as a XBMC/Kodi media center PC. I also set it up to be a Airprint server. Nice thing is that it is so easy to try all kinds of things and just wipe the MicroSD card and start over.

A: 
The RPi Model 2 is perfect for small, yet complex, IoT projects. It is so much faster and easier to complete a project when you can use enterprise development tools (Java, Spring, Ruby, etc.) and the Model 2 has enough horsepower and RAM to handle those apps. For example, I just completed a project that uses Bluetooth LE temperature sensors and a Model 2 to manage the temperature of my home so that condensation will not form on the aluminum window mullions (and run off onto the wood floors, ruining them). It integrates over WiFi with my smart thermostat (which measures internal temperature and humidity) to calculate the dew point. When the temperature of the mullions approaches the dew point, my RPi Model 2 adjusts the temperature downward to prevent the condensation from forming. It's written in Java and utilizes open source frameworks, minimizing the amount of coding I had to do and enabling me to use a highly productive IDE and build system (Eclipse, Jenkins, etc.). Without the Model 2, I'd have had to use a NUC or similar at 10X the cost of the Model 2.

A: 
Difficult to answer as really, the world is the limit because this is essentially a fully-functional linux computer. But it is inexpensive enough to have it just do one thing all the time.

I've made:
1) a Bit Torrent server using Deluge.
2) Flight tracker using RTL2832U from amazon to receive airplane transponder signals.
3) Volumio music playing system.
4) Control a 3D printer with Octopi -- this is awesome as disconnects the printer from your laptop so if it glitches you don't ruin a print.

There are also XBMC (now called Kodi) for streaming to a TV.

People have also done security camera's, interface to n-wave home automation, etc.

The beauty of the product it that it gives you a computer-- so HDMI, 4 USB's, ethernet. Easy to add wifi, and the camera. So you can easily put it on the internet, AND have it access the "real-world" with sensors etc.

A: 
These are small boxes that run Linux, so almost anything you can do with Linux you can do with the RPI2. Home media servers, control a 3D printer, and minecraft server are a few of the things I use mine for. Microsoft has announced they'll have a version of Windows 10 that runs on the RPI2 for free, which will allow you to do even more things. If you already have a background in things like arduino, you have access to GPIO pins to access other devices. It's a bit more complex than working with Arduino but you get a lot more features.

A: 
No it does not. You will want to purchase the fastest micro SD card you can afford (Class 10). I would recommend starting with a 8GB Class 10 micro SD card which will cost $5-10+ USD. The card I've included below is slightly more expensive, so it might be worth shopping around.
