Default Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. Itís a capable little PC which can be used 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.
$25 (Model A) or $35 (Model B) USD for a perfect HTPC I might have to pick up a few of them for around the house.

It was originally created for educational purposes, but there are people sad saying that it will change the computer industry forever.
