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 not too familiar with your current model, but the D620 had no real issues with Haiku, at least in my configuration (Core2Duo 1.8GHz, Nvidia Quadro NVS video, Dell wireless 1390 aka Broadcom 4311). I think the only thing that didn't work at all was Bluetooth, and I don't think there is full Bluetooth support in Haiku yet. The SATA hard drive works fine too, I think Haiku sees it as regular ATA though.

As an aside, the D620 is also about 90% Hackintosh compatible out of the box under Leopard. It's pretty much the same specs as the first MacBook Pro, with the exception of the graphics chip, which works fine if you use the legacy enablers. The versions of the D620 with Intel GMA 950 video work perfectly without enablers, of course. The audio requires one of the custom kexts too, but I don't remember which one. Everything else, including wireless and Bluetooth, are automatically recognized as "genuine" Apple hardware.
