How to buy Raspberry PI / Banana PI

The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools. (Ref: Wiki, Raspberry PI Official Website).

Banana Pi is a single-board computer made in China. It can run Android, Ubuntu and Debian. Raspbian can be run, though the CPU complies with the requirements of the Debian armhf port.[1] It uses the Allwinner A20 SoC and as such is mostly covered by the linux-sunxi port.
Banana Pi has no direct relationship to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, though its similarities are clear.[2] "Linux user & Developer" does not consider it a "direct clone, but a considerable evolution," whilst similarly sees it as a clone with improved performance.[3][4] The board layout is very similar to the Raspberry PI board, though it's about 10% larger and the relative spacing of some connectors varies. Not all Raspberry Pi accessories will fit as a result. (Ref: Wiki,

Banana Pi is much faster than Raspberry PI.  However, Raspberry PI has a very large user group, many interesting projects can be found based on Raspberry PI (Raspberry PI community).
