If you have just got your hands on the latest Raspberry Pi mini PC and are wondering where to start, you may be interested in a new Raspberry Pi 3 setup video tutorial which has been created by Scott Hanselman.
In the video embedded below Scott shows you how to set up your new Raspberry Pi 3 from scratch and get an LED to blinking in less than 60 minutes. The latest Raspberry Pi 3 hardware was officially launched last month and is now available to purchase priced at $35.
Features of the new Raspberry Pi 3 mini PC include :
– A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU
– 802.11n Wireless LAN
– Bluetooth 4.1
– Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
– 4 USB ports
– 40 GPIO pins
– Full HDMI port
– Ethernet port
– Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
– Camera interface (CSI)
– Display interface (DSI)
– Micro SD card slot (now push-pull rather than push-push)
– VideoCore IV 3D graphics core
If you have a Raspberry Pi 3, awesome. If not, this should work with an original Pi or a Pi 3. You’ll want to make sure you have a few parts ready to save you time and trips to the store! I recommend a complete Raspberry Pi Kit when you’re just getting started as it guarantees you’ll be up and running in minutes. They include the mini SD Card (acts as a hard drive), a power supply, a case, etc. All you need to provide is a USB Keyboard and Mouse. I ended up getting a cheap Mini USB wired keyboardand cheap USB wired mouse for simplicity.
