The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It's a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing, and games, as well as plays high-definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512 Megabytes of RAM. This revision 2.0 board features two mounting holes for easy installation, a built-in reset circuit, and can be powered via the USB data ports. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card (not included) for booting and long-term storage. The Raspberry Pi is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems. Component colors may vary.

Thus is not a replacement for a “real” computer BUT…it’s pretty neat. Takes no effort to get it set up and running once you have your operating system on a SD card (or a MicroSD in an adapter). You will need extra things to make it work:

Raspberry Pi is a Fantastic Platform!

The Raspberry Pi is a groundbreaking new microcomputer platform that currently sells from between $35 and $40. Any price over that is price gouging and you’d be unwise to purchase from such a seller. Do yourself a favor and do a direct internet search for Raspberry Pi and price to make sure that you are getting the best deal. I am hopeful that those prices will be on Amazon.

This is the most fun I’ve had with a computer since the original Apple II, but it is way more fun and a fraction of the cost!

Price Gouging — EDIT: The vendor lowered their price.

The makers of the Raspberry PI is a non-profit organization and their purpose is to provide affordable computers. They sell this model for 35 dollars and anyone marking this product up for resell should be ashamed.

Works great as a home media center

I bought this to set up next to my TV in my living room and have it act as a home media center and it has been working great. I installed Xbian on it and now it boots up Xbox Media Center and it lets me control it all with my Android phone. It can play all of the 1080p videos I throw at it just fine.

I’ve had my Raspberry Pi for a few weeks now and I’m loving it. It is a great little toy for anyone who enjoys tinkering with Linux or with hardware.

The cake may be a lie, but this Pi is AWESOME!

I have been aware of these little guys for almost a year now, and have wanted one for just about as long. One day while looking online at all the interesting things people were doing with them, I happened across a site that had taken the Raspberry Pi, and ported the wonderful XBMC software over to it, creating RaspBMC. […] I read up on it a bit, and decided to go ahead and purchase the Pi, along with the following:

I picked up a Raspberry Pi recently as a fun little tinker project. I was able to get it up an running within an hour with no previous Linux experience.
