For those who've never heard of this (you must live under a rock) it's a small basic Linux based computer that cost about $35.
I wish I had kept my electronic kits from Radio Shack...

Here are some interesting use for it. :)

It's meant as a teaching implement for children, and to engage them on computer science. Raspberry Pi is not meant as a replacement for our main computers, so no it doesn't ''suck'', it's a milestone. And it can be programmed to do sweet neat tasks.

It's not a netbook.

This is Raspberry Pi.

I'm really fascinated by this though (link previously posted)
Raspberry Pi Laptop with Atrix 4G Dock
I think it was a great concept. I wonder why it didn't work with the original idea.
