I had been hearing a lot about the Raspberry Pi computer which appeared to be very similar to the BeagleBoard but only costs $35. That price, being clearly in impulse-buy territory, appealed to my computer buying impulses.

First Discovery: They're hard to get.

The Raspberry Pi computer is the brainchild of a group of British computer science educators. They set out to solve a problem. As they had modest objectives and resources, they only planned to produce a few thousand boards, however when they announced the computer and its price, they were flooded with hundreds of thousands of orders. Needless to say, this has led to some supply problems.
