Raspberry Pi review

Hardware

The Raspberry Pi is one of the most eagerly-awaited computers of 2012. With more than 350,000 people on the Raspberry Pi waiting list, it's an enthusiasts' machine with mainstream appeal.

The difficulties that some noobs may experience stem from the nature of its operating system. Several Linux distributions are recommended.
