Mini Computers

I recently discovered the Raspberry Pi mini single board computer that runs on Linux fits totally into a case the size of small or medium size book but packs a lot of power for living room browsing on your TV, watching movies or other solutions.

Here is a link on Amazon to buy the hardware for theĀ  Raspberry Pi. Here is a book that gets you on the right track as well. You can add many accessories to to add functionality and power. Wireless access is a critical one.

Here are links to other info on it.

This could be a low power option for preparedness solutions as well. Running Linux, it should run well Portable Apps as well.

One day soon I hope to be able to purchase one check it out for myself.
