Delicious Raspberry Pi

Linux
Hardware

It was quite easy to assemble and get up and running. I won't produce another HowTo doc here because there are plenty of good ones already. The ones that I used that are referred to throughout this article. What actually took the longest was putting together the slick little case sold by Built To Spec. There are lots of folks selling enclosures for the Pi, but I liked the looks of this one. It does require a bit of ambidexterity to assemble, kind of like putting a Chinese puzzle back together, but it is a nice, well-designed case.

In addition to the $35 Model B Pi purchased from Allied Electronics, I bought a $10 8GB SDHC card and a 7-port USB 2.0 powered hub for $25, because my plans for the Pi were to see how well it could perform as a NAS device and media server, and for that I was going to need more than just the two USB ports on the Pi.
