Good things do come in small packages, and for everyone asking for proof, may we present the absolutely adorable Raspberry Pi mini-computer. And here’s some great news to cheer up those who are considering picking up a Raspberry Pi for themselves – the Raspberry Pi Foundation has now upgraded its RAM from 256MB to 512MB, and at no extra cost!
So, now for just $35, you can pick up a Raspberry Pi mini-computer. It’s a credit card sized computer that you can plug into your TV and keyboard and use it as an ordinary desktop to edit documents and spreadsheets, and even play games. And the coolest thing? This little device can even playback HD videos.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity, founded by Eben Upton, who also is the chip designer for this marvelous device. It’s targeted at developing countries, with the vision to make computing affordable and available to the masses, and introduce computers to school children as well. The Foundation had initially started with the aim to introduce school kids to learn how to code software, but now has expanded its scope towards use as home PCs as well.
