Raspberry Pis $25 Computer

 http://www.raspberrypi.org/

Meet the Raspberry Pi — a bare-bones computer the size of a flash drive that costs $25.

 

Yes, it's real. And it's coming out next month, according to a new blog post by its developers on the Raspberry Pi Foundation website.

This little guy runs a stripped down version of Linux, an open-source operating system. Here are the specs:

  • 700-megahertz processor (the iPhone has a 1-gigahertz processor)
  • 128 megabytes of RAM (the iPhone has 512MB)
  • SD Card slot for storage
  • USB port
  • HDMI Port

It still packs a punch, though — the processor is beefy enough to run Quake 3, a first-person shooter game that has some moderately intense graphics. It runs that game at about 20 frames per second at a 1920 by 1080 pixel resolution (that's about as high as most modern laptops).
