    Hi all,
    just a quick review on the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
    As most of you know , these little devices are awesome and can lead to you creative mind cut loose designing and building projects and see them come to life in a sense.
    There are a couple of differences on the new 3 B+ as you may be aware of so this obviously justifies the need for an upgrade in the software/firmware to enable you to enjoy these new abilities.
    Sure you can do as i did and create your own MICRO SD after doing the research etc, but it sure is much nicer, quicker and easier to just purchase the MICRO SD specifically coded for the 3 B+ .
    Simply insert the SD and run the usual installation process and your up and running ready to be creative in no time at all.
    The new SD card is required if you are intending on using the new 7" Raspberry Pi Touch Screen Colour Screen.
    Plug and play, no calibration required, the screen works instantly.
    Excellent.
    Regards
    Dave.

    Very handy pre-built card for the Pi, saved me a bit of work. Came bundled with the Pi 3+ Starter Kit.

    It was loaded with Raspbian 4.14 (based on Debian Stretch), which officially supports the Pi 3+. Note that if you're considering Ubuntu MATE instead, it is not yet supported on the 3 B+. Also careful buying your own SD, not all models are supported. (Posted on 13/06/2018)
