Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

Read the specs, it can handle 1080p at 30fps quite smoothly. There's a ton of video proof on Youtube as well. The GPU is the real gem of this device, apart from the fact that the driver is (currently) a binary blob. Broadcom has hinted at opening it up to developers at a later date, probably when the next iteration is released.

Edit: Sorry bhtooefr, I guess I type too slow, I didn't see your post until after I sent mine. ;)
