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.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOMENESS!

Pros: A 3,000 character limit for listing the Pros doesn't suffice. This is the second, and likely not the last, RPi I'll purchase. I've been finding so many uses for this it's insane.
1. I've used XBMC as a media center for my wife to have a cheap HTPC in the kitchen.
2. I've set up XMBC as a media center in my wife's van. Coupled with a wireless router and the Yatse Android app, my kids can control what they watch without fumbling with a DVD player.
3. Coupled with a Bluetooth OBDII reader, it displays detailed engine status readouts from my car.
4. Coupled with a $10 USB GPS receiver, I used freeware to set up a cheap GPS navigation unit in my car.
5. Using the Raspbian OS and Scratch, I started teaching my kids to program. At $35 for the processor, and only 5 minutes to reload the entire OS, I don't care if they cause any damage.
Next stop, robotics projects with the kids!

Cons: Uhm... user friendliness? It took next to no technical knowledge to load NOOBS or XBMC and configure them. To set up advanced features like setting up an ad hoc network from within XBMC, you might want to consult a LOT of forums before proceeding, or have a Linux guru on speed dial.

Other Thoughts: Final verdict: AWESOME! Do you need some technical knowledge to use it for basic features - probably. To use it for advanced features - definitely. But if you're looking at buying one, I'd hope you know what you're getting in to.
Consult the many forums for ideas for new projects, and how to complete them.

5 out of 5 eggsMost versatile computer Ever!!!

Pros: I Bought this for my Little Brother (he’s 13) for a school project (I didn’t help him program it he did it all himself so it must be easy to use) he used it as a FM Transmitter and it works really well now that project is over he uses it to stream Netflix and other media server uses...

Cons: Should have bought 2

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love it!

Pros: -Tiny size
-Great performance for the price
-Versatile
-Great learning tool
-Fun to experiment with

I have rarely been as happy with a purchase as I am with this one. This thing is just amazing for what it costs. I can stream video off my external hard drive with no issues at all, making this an amazing mini media device. Cases for it can be found for less than $5 or made out of just about anything if you like to make custom cases. Has a lot of potential for experimenting with. Just looking around online can give you a ton of ideas to try to do with a Raspberry Pi.

Cons: While this isn't by any means hard to figure out, it certainly can be a lot to take in when trying to learn new things on it. There are tutorials for most anything you could want to do with it online. As long as you are willing to research some, it is amazing. However if you are not willing to research much, I could see this becoming a frustrating device to figure out.

Other Thoughts: Including the Pi itself, a case, an SD card, and a couple USB controllers, I spent a total of $65 getting a great functional home media device. It would be very easy to swap the SD card with another and give it a whole new purpose.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Device

Pros: Best $40 blown. Got my device earlier and it is what it seems to be: fully functioning computer in a tiny package. Slap an OS on it and code around and this little slab can be anything from a PC to a home theater to a game console to a core component in a special application. Home surveillance, robotics, you name a function a computer can be and it does it, as long as you have a 5V 1A power brick to spare, a video cord, a keyboard and an 8 GB SD Card. Runs warm but not too warm, very versatile in what it supports. Best birthday gift ever.

Cons: No peripherals included, you just get the pi. No in-box instructions, you'll need to hit the website for them and flash the SD card yourself. ...that's it, that's all I've got. Even installing is easy if you follow instructions properly.

Other Thoughts: This sucker's my new home theater and emulation console for my man cave. And I am one happy man.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for hobby projects

Pros: Why I like the Pi is the GPIO slot. Using either i2c or SPI, it is really simple to set the Pi up as the central control point for a network of microcontrollers. In addition to the ethernet port and a collection of freely available web servers (might take a bit of googling), with just a basic knowledge of programming and electronics it becomes easy to set up a web controlled network, limited only by your imagination.

Cons: With a whopping 700mhz ARM CPU, using it as a laptop/desktop replacement is tough. These days I just end up running it headless and controlling it through SSH.
