Raspberry Pi Barebones PC: Fits On Your Keychain and Costs Only 25 Bucks!

by Range

The Raspberry Pi PC is about the size of a USB flash drive. It’s an ultra-minimal PC that David Braben hopes to sell for about $25 (USD). Now that’s a nice portable (and affordable) form-factor.

The Raspberry Pi comes with a 700MHz ARM11 processor, 128MB of RAM, composite and HDMI ports for video, removable media and a USB 2.0 port. If you add a 16GB SD card, a USB hub connected to a mouse and keyboard, and a monitor, whammo, you’ve got a fully-functioning PC. It can even decode 1080p30 H.264 video. That thing you see sticking off the board is an optional 12 megapixel camera module.

While there are other low-cost alternatives, this is an impressive piece of kit for what it is. I’d like to see this everywhere, powering schools, libraries, and Internet cafés all over the world. You can check out more about the Raspberry Pi over at its website, or check out the video below.

I hope to soon be able to walk around with a supercomputer the size of a MacBook Air.
