Raspberry Pi


Aimed at the adventurous or the learning oriented, the Raspberry Pi provides an outstanding platform for the small-scale system or other project of your dreams.

Raspberry Pi


Updated with video: A PC for under £30 - cheap, yes, but worth it?

Cheap as (digital) chips ; Excellent connectivity ; Relatively powerful graphics ; Extensive community support

Very sloooow CPU ; Not immediately accessible (but that’s part of the point)
