    Great for little projects. Used these to replace pc's on our factory floor, they connect straight into our UNIX manufacturing system as quickly as a terminal on a pc. Also set one up as a media player using some software called XBMC, which you can connect to via a smart phone or tablet, works perfectly (you can basically turn your TV in a Smart TV!). Definitely worth buying a few of these, even if it's just to have a play around with.

    Versatile, excellent value and fun.
    Versatile, excellent value for money and fun platform for experimentation. The only downside is that at this price point I'm constantly thinking of new uses and projects for the Raspberry Pi!
