Description How To
 

The Raspberry Pi Model B is a credit-card sized computer that plugs right into your TV. It has many of the capabilities of a traditional PC and can be used for word-processing, spreadsheet, and games. It can even play high-definition video! The board was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of bringing low-cost, easy to program computers to developing countries and children.

The system is based on the Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip which features an ARM1176JZF-S 700MHZ processor. It has an onboard VideoCore IV GPU capable of High-Definition video playback and has 512 megabytes of RAM. An SD card (4GB SDHC recommended, not included) is used for booting and long term storage as the design does not include any built-in storage. The system is intended to run Linux based operating systems.

You'll need to supply your own USB keyboard, mouse, display, HDMI cable, USB A to Micro cable, 1.0A 5V USB power supply, SD card (4GB recommended), and RPi compatible Linux distribution. Alternatively, you can also purchase our Raspberry Pi Starter pack and only have to supply your own USB keyboard and mouse.

Awesome April 23, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Vancouver , BC Canada  
Great way to get a raspi, quick shipping, and it includes a book! Cheaper than most resellers. If you are thinking about buying this, i'll tell you to go for it.

Too cool for words January 31, 2013
Reviewer: James Craig from Gastonia, NC United States  
I've used the BASIC Stamp, Arduino and other small microprocessors/computers but the Raspberry Pi has proven to be one of the more useful. I can run several different versions of Linux on it and all I have to do to change operating systems is to put a different SD card into it. I have three set up.

I've set up one with RaspBMC, a port of XBMC, which I use for a media server. I watch old episodes of "Nova" and my wife listens to French radio broadcasts.

Awesome device and equally awesome customer service when I bought it.
