THE RASPBERRY PI has been one of the most eagerly anticipated devices of the year. It's a low-cost machine that allows students to get to grips with programming, and has also sparked a huge amount of interest from computer technology enthusiasts.
Announced last year but with early production devices only starting to trickle out to buyers since April, the Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer based on an ARM processor and designed to boot from an SD Card flash storage device.
Buyers need to order a device from either RS Components or Farnell in the UK, but presently there is a long waiting list.
