With the recent release of the latest Raspberry Pi (512MB version), I thought it would be fitting to add it the Wishlist. This newest version was announced just this week and I was fortunate enough to snag one before they sold out.
If you’ve thought about diving into Linux and physical computing, this beauty would be the perfect gateway. Really, for me it’s become greatly addictive. Also, it would be an awesome gift to get someone started.
The minimum requirements for it is a 4GB or greater SD card and a 5v power supply. A monitor or a TV with HDMI isn’t necessary; you could run it headless. You can also get some really cool accessories like cases (like the Pibow below), WiFi cards, USB hubs, or some breakouts for the GPIO. Newark and Adafruit offer various accessories to help you along.
For now, enjoy some eye candy!
