The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 128 or 256 Megabytes of RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.
This is the Model B Revision 2.0, code 2 Rasperry Pi® and contains 256MB RAM memory, two USB ports and a 10/100 Ethernet controller.
As typical of modern computers, generic USB keyboards and mice are compatible with the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi use Linux-kernel based operating systems. The Raspberry Pi does not come with a real-time clock, so an OS must use a network time server, or ask the user for time information at boot time to get access to time and date info for file time and date stamping. However a real time clock (such as the DS1307) with battery backup can be easily added via the I2C interface.
Raspberry Pi® is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

This RPi comes with a very neat raspberry-colour plastic carry case. An RPi with some added value :)

I purchased a replacement Pi when I managed to fry the NIC on my last one and my ATV2. Purchasing from Proto-Pic is simple and quick so saves going through other channels.
I'm using my Pi as and XBMC media centre but have previously used it with a time lapse photography rail (now using Arduino) and a LAMP server.
