The latest addition to the Raspberry Pi family, the Raspberry Pi 2 takes the platform to a completely new level. Combining a sixfold increase in processing power and a doubling of memory capacity with complete backward compatibility with the existing Model B+, Raspberry Pi 2 is the perfect board for professionals and hobbyists alike.
The new Raspberry Pi 2 - Model B is jam packed with features! With a new <strong>quad core processor</strong> and twice the memory with a massive <strong>1GB RAM</strong>, It's a whopping <strong>6x faster</strong> than its predecessor. The ultra-low-cost, deck-of-cards sized Linux computer has had a makeover, and it's a good one at that!

I have my Raspberry setup to turn on with my TV and it will take around 22 seconds to boot-up (compared to the WD TV which took 1min and extra time to read any new files added to an external hard-drive)
It can play any media files unlike the WD TV
I have a DTS capable soundbar so the Raspberry can play all sound in pass-through and automatically downscale True-HD (once set up)
You will not need to overclock this at all so buy a cheap plastic case not an expensive aluminum one like I did.
You can also use this a living room PC
I'm not a fan of streaming movies so get a decent Wi-Fi dongle if you don't use external drives (I got a cheap 150mbps which is more than good enough)
This Raspberry is the equivalent of a medium to large size box of matches so it can be hidden away (90mm, 62mm, 28mm in the case I bought for it)
My summary of the Raspberry
Brilliant and cheap piece of kit for a living PC or Media Centre and puts the more expensive dedicated media players to shame and you don't have to be a technophile to set one up
There's no ethernet, only one usb port, but it's got that lovely CEC HDMI component , which means that you don't need a keyboard or mouse to run XBMC , just use the your existing TV remote control to navigate around.. pop in a class 6 or 10 micro SD card , install Raspbmc, plug in one of those £5 usb wifi sticks and off you go.
These things can do so much more than just run XBMC but if you're hoping to run a lightweight desktop like xcfe / Lubuntu then you'll need to move on up to the B+.
The support in this community is outstanding and if you've kids interested in computing , then these things are a fantastic way to show them that computing does not start and stop with an iPad.
If you're wanting to install a media player, I'd recommend OSMC, which is very easy and quick to get up and running, and works well.
One thing I really love is that it'll work for hours and hours on my portable 5000mAH battery, which means when I'm with friends I don't need to worry about having somewhere to plug it in, and means it can be more portable.
I do also have Raspbian installed on another micro sd, which will be great now and then because it'll provide quick and easy access to a web browser, and will allow me to do some programming in Java while not at home.
Basically it's a great small device which is very flexible in what it can do.
Actually I am using it with openelec, I attached on it a IQaudio Pi-DAC+. I bought a projector, I had some speakers and a mini amplifier at home, and then booooom it seems to be at the cinema every night! I couldn't live without it..I have an sd with Retropie as well, but I use it when friends are at home to have fun with mario kart or Neogeo games.
After this I bought a raspberry zero, and a raspberry pi 3 as well. To give you an idea of the amount of projects you can do which is infinite, I am using the RPi 3 to run machine learning libraries on it.
