    Yup, me too, it's going to be great

    Got a few things lined up for it already.

    Interesting to read about their manufacturing dilemma.

    Obligatory:
    - but can it run Crysis
    - I want a Beowulf cluster of these!

    Still, it'll be interesting to see what these can be made to do.

    Remember the primary objective of the project is to get the young 'un's into programming, instead of just playing games on 'em

    Was what I meant: poke (and peek?) around in the system where the 'game playing' is learning how to make it do stuff rather than turn it into a game device or something like that.

    You are correct, they are totally different.

    The Rassberry PI project is intended to get young minds active and interested in the ICT sector again (in the UK).

    It's basically a low cost SBC (single board computer) or to quote the organisation

    An ARM GNU/Linux box for $25. Take a byte!
    The purpose of the project is to push these single boards computers into schools and tertiary centers in the UK in the hope of resurrecting interest in the ICT sector.

    The Ubislate is just a cheap tablet for the masses.

    That's pushing it I reckon. But yeah, HDMI and ethernet... No doubt applications in all shapes and sizes will emerge.
