The Pi Zero is a fully fledged com­puter which meas­ures just 6.5cm by 3cm. Made in Wales, it sells for just £4 in the UK and $5 in the US. Rasp­berry Pi is also giv­ing the device away for free with the pur­chase of its £5.99 monthly magazine, The MagPi.

How­ever, it’s not the only kid on the block. The C.H.I.P. (from Next Thing Co.) launched earli­er this year has a sim­il­ar form factor and sim­il­ar price. Here’s a blow-by-blow com­par­is­on — but it’s dif­fer­ent strokes for dif­fer­ent folks.

Either way, these sub £10 com­puters will dis­rupt many exist­ing busi­ness mod­els (and cre­ate a few new ones, as well).
