Raspberry Pi: An unique tiny and cheap computer

Raspberry Pi is an unique tiny and cheap computer not only for kids. And the website we introduce here is about this computer - how to use it, where to buy it, what is behind it...

Raspberry Pi: About a tiny and cheap computer, Raspberry Pi.
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi came in 2006, when Eben Upton and his colleagues at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory, including Rob Mullins, Jack Lang and Alan Mycroft, became concerned about the year-on-year decline in the numbers and skills levels of the A Level students applying to read Computer Science in each academic year. What started as a project for students is now a famous project with backers from all around the world.

"Something had changed the way kids were interacting with computers. A number of problems were identified: the colonisation of the ICT curriculum with lessons on using Word and Excel, or writing webpages; the end of the dot-com boom; and the rise of the home PC and games console to replace the Amigas, BBC Micros, Spectrum ZX and Commodore 64 machines that people of an earlier generation learned to program on," say the authors about the problem they wanted to address.

And the solution? The Raspberry Pi, which is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. Ad it is extremely cheap!

What you should know...
Right now the Model A of the Raspberry Pi costs $25 and the Model B $35 - plus local taxes and shipping/handling fees. It is a very affordable price for a computer like this!
