Hardware, Embedded Systems We all know platforms like the Beagleboard, which are cheap hardware platforms which can be used in all sorts of projects. A new entry into this market is Raspberry Pi, a British ARM board which is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. For a mere $25, you'll have a fully-configured ARM-based 1080p-capable mini-motherboard. The device is still in development, and only a few days ago, the alpha version of the board was demonstrated running Quake III.

...and at least 20-30 times the power consumption, about 6 times the size (and that's talking mini-ITX), and a lot more noise since it will require cooling of some sort.

Totally pointless comparison.
