Raspberry Pi: Take a Byte!

The Raspberry Pi is a Linux machine based on the Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip and is about the size of a credit card. This platform includes an ARM 1176JZF-S 700MHz processor with a VideoCore IV GPU, and 256MB of RAM; storage is via an SD card slot. The Model A has one USB port and no Ethernet while the Model B has two USB ports as well as Ethernet. The Raspberry Pi Foundation developed the device for education with open source hardware and software. It can run Debian GNU/Linux, Fedora or Arch Linux ARM, and Python support is planned. The Foundation claims performance is something like a 300MHz Pentium 2. The Model A is only $25 and the Model B $35!
