My old gaming pc was a AMD dual core 4200 with 2 gigs of ram and a EVGA Geforce GTX+ 9800 video card running Windows XP. I decided that instead of upgrading the operating system I may as well upgrade the entire thing so decided to go with a new pc and turn my old gaming pc into a fileserver/torrent seed box/etc and just use VNC to remote control it.

Rasberry PI Alpha board

Note: Alpha board for Rasberry PI

 

$25 Computer?

Yep, that’s correct and not a typo. Rasberry PI I had heard about these guys off and on for several months now and what they will be offering is awesome. A tiny yet powerful computer that can be used as anything from a makeshift desktop pc, home automation, media player for your television, to countless other projects. The limit is only your imagination. These are scheduled to go on sale sometime toward the end of November or the beginning of December, so keep an eye on their website and forums for up to date news and information. You can click the link to their website for more information and forum discussions.

Update: The Rasberry PI folks had an original plan of shipping these end of last November first of December, but things got pushed back. From this updated link it looks like January is the target for shipping – http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/422
