Raspberry Pi computer in your pocket

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. It also plays high-definition video. I recently purchased a raspberry Pi online, it took a while to get my hands on it. But it was well worth the wait. What an amazing piece of technology for its size. I have played around with it for a wait and its uses are endless. But from a school point of view, it will be amazing piece of equipment to promote programming.

The Raspberry Pi can be purchased through Premier Farnell/Element 14 and RSComponent. There are two models Model A $25 and Model B $35, I am not sure what the exact difference is between these. But a pc for $25, where could you go wrong.

Here you can see the Raspberry Pi being started up:
