Product Description

New Cased Kit includes Clear Raspberry Pi case plus the 512Mb Raspberry Pi Board

The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 512 Megabytes of RAM. This revision 2.0 board features two mounting holes for easy installation, a built-in reset circuit, and can be powered via the USB data ports. 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.

The Raspberry Pi use Linux-kernel based operating systems. Debian GNU/Linux, Iceweasel, Calligra Suite and Python are planned to be bundled with the Raspberry Pi. 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.

  • "How can you go wrong with such a complete package?" by Karmudjun on 5/24/2013

    Quality:

    This is the first kit project I've toyed with in years, and it is simplicity itself. The case fits perfectly, I plan on eventually making this pi a entertainment server but for now I'm playing with the camera, the software, and I'll just see where things go. I may want one or two more for other projects I haven't thought of yet!

    Simple, easy to set up and use. User interfaces and peripheral interfaces are set up great. Can't wait to build a few projects.

    Quality:

    I am currently putting together a tutorial and this platform is cheap, easy to work with and durable. I was going to go with a x86 based system but after using this, it is clear (just as the case is) that I can captivate my students interest more with this clear cased rpi than a used wyse thin client. I am going to recommend they purchase this.

  • "Great microcomputer!" by BlackEagleTalon on 2/15/2013
    Overall: 5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    I got this to play around and learn Linux without having to shell out for a full PC. I was not disappointed! It's got a great price point, tons of extensibility and millions of applications you can run on it. It's not the fastest computer in the world, but it will get the job done. I have one now, I'll be getting more very shortly once I have multiple cards configured and working how I want them; print/scanner server, media server, media/web surfing clients for TV's, one for my emergency Ham Radio go box as my packet computer. I'm even looking into the pan/tilt project for a camera to help my wife out with her passion for photography.

    I got the unit and same night loaded XBMC and have never looked back. Blows away the Apple TV I have been using! Getting one for every room.

    Great combination of case and RasPi; Very sturdy. Only downside would be a lack hole/port to the GPIO pins/port.
