Raspberry Pi $25 PC goes into alpha production

August 1, 2011 | Link of the Day | By: Mark VandeWettering

I’m interested in low cost computing. Like the kind of computing that costs what a Blu Ray disk costs. For a while, that’s been something like the Arduino, which has a 16Mhz 8 bit processor. But the Raspberry Pi is something else: a proposed computer which plugs into an HDMI port for display, uses USB for peripherals, and runs Linux. Best of all, the target price is $25. I hadn’t heard much about this project lately, but apparently some of the first alpha prototypes are being produced. I’m sure to get some of these when they finally go into production: I’ve got a couple of projects that could make good use of such an inexpensive computing platform. I’m keeping my eyes open on this one.
