I have a RPi Model B and a RPi 2 (works great as a Kodi media center!), but just for fun I ordered a RPi Model A+ to check it out.
In common with the B+ and RPi 2, the A+ has the enchanced 40-pin GPIO header, so it's well suited to being used as a project board (in contrast to being used as a desktop GUI). Unlike it's bigger sibling, the 512 MB Model B+, the A+ has 256 MB of RAM.
Links to several articles about the Raspberry Pi Model A+
