About Raspberry pi
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.In short, a pi is whatever you want it to be! A media server? Home automation? Simple Desktop Computer? No problem.
My pi is a B+ model, it's basic spec is:
- 700MHz CPU
- 512MB Memory
- Micro SD Slot
- x4 USB Ports
Now obviously, this seems pretty rubbish doesn't it?
- Don't forget it cost £26.
- Also, don't forget this particular pi is quite happily running apache, php and mysql all while running several other useful home network services.
Doesn't seem so bad now does it?
