Raspbery Pi

I got my Raspbery Pi on Friday and although I knew what to expect, it still amazes when you see how small it is.

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny ARM based computer, with 192MB RAM, CPU, GPU, network and USB on a board a few inches across. It only costs £25, so I felt, why not? Here it is sitting on top of a laptop, hooked up and running :

Of course it runs Linux, but unlike my phone which runs the Android variant, the Raspberry Pi is running Debian. This is hooked up to my TV via HDMI (doing an aptitude update):

This is a real computer not a toy. I just need to figure out what I might do with it now!
