Elite creator David Braben creates PC in a USB stick... for $25

Blimey. All it has is an HDMI port to connect to a monitor, and a USB connection for a keyboard, and it`s a working PC running Ubuntu.

I was confused - in the video, he said you could use it for Facebook, Twitter etc, but how does it connect to the internet? In the comments below (too many to read them all) one said it didn`t...

Bare bones Raspberry Pi PC gets ready to launch

The finished device will be sold in two configurations. A Model A for $25 (£16) which lacks a network connector and a Model B for $35 (£22) which does have an Ethernet socket.



Populated boards: an update on where we are

Here's a little something to warm your festive cockles. These are populated boards from our first run of beta devices. They're undergoing electrical testing alongside hardware and software testing at the moment, and if all goes well, the Raspberry Pi you'll be buying in January (or by auction later this month if they all work as they should) will be exactly like one of these.

Oh I *love* the naming convention. ;)

I might just wait for the Master edition.

Pound per megahertz that could end up going for the price of a Spectrum.
