This review is from: Raspberry Pi 83-14421 Computer - Model B (512M RAM)
Pros: Purpose built system on chip that was designed and priced to meet needs more than wants. This is a great device for tinkering in different fields like programming, networking, robotics, etc.
You can turn this into a small server due in large part due to the entire Debian Wheezy official repository being compiled for Raspberry Pi. Between that git there is a plethora of software for this device.
Cons: Hearing people complain about the same things they say this is lacking, second nic, dual core, nics sharing usb bus. Basically all of the things that would price this out of reach for most of it's intended consumer base.
The device its self has served me well so far. One must remember, this was intended for children's education, anything that it can do in the hobbist / tinkerer realm is gravy.
Other Thoughts: I'll probably buy a couple more soon for some projects, turn one into a wireless repeater, dedicate another to being a transparent squid proxy / vpn.
Also I'd like to take two of them and see if I can set up a samba4 active directory domain for my apartment, complete with redundant dns, dhcp.
