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.

I'm really impressed

I'm really impressed by this - for the specs, the speed, and of course the price.
I was trying to turn my old NAS into a micro fanless server after removing the hard disk. It's a PPC and runs a rootable Linux, but I gave up because it is a prehistoric yellowDog 3.something and I don't have time to spare to try to compile a newer one. This board can be a perfect replacement.

And for the speed... it is a more convincing demo than that of the AmigaOne X1000. And it is two orders of magnitude cheaper.
