Raspberry Pi is the world's most popular card-sized development board SoC which can handle many Linux distributions. It can be used for a wide range of tasks, from being a personal PC or a media center PC to micro controllers programming or building robots. As of this writing, Raspberry Pi exists in three editions: top Raspberry Pi 2, middle Raspberry Pi B+ and the low end Raspberry Pi A+. If you are interested in Raspberry Pi B+, here is a good news for you - the price for this board is $25.
Although about a million Raspberry Pi 2 devices were already sold, the Raspberry Pi B+ model is still very popular. Developers reported that they were able to reduce the cost of manufacturing of the older model, B+, so price also got reduced.
If you’re looking for a Raspberry Pi with networking and multiple USB ports, and don’t need the extra performance or memory that the Raspberry Pi 2 brings, you might want to check it out.
Raspberry Pi B+ comes with the Broadcom BCM2835 700 MHz chip (ARM11 ARM1176JZF-S processor), 512 MB RAM, 4 x USB ports, 1x microSD, 1 x Ethernet @100MB/s.
Besides the B+, it is possible to buy a lightweight version of the Raspberry Pi board, model A+, which costs $20 but comes without Ethernet and only with one USB port.

If you are planning to buy a Raspberry Pi, you should be crazy to go for this one. Raspberry Pi 2 is not much more expensive and gives more possibilities.
I think the same. I bought Raspberry Pi 2 instead of this board in near past.
