The road to Raspberry Pi

This is the Raspberry PI, the smallest and cheapest computer in the market and one that everyone wants a piece of. 

The PI sold out under an hour after its release on Wednesday and let's face it, at $25 a pop it's hard to walk past this bargain. 

It might not look like much but this credit card sized unit can pack a punch. Each unit comes with a 700MHz (ARM based) processor, 256MB of RAM, HDMI output and SD card support. 

Running on Linux, the creators of this pocket marvel at the Raspberry Pi Foundation have high hopes that it will get kids interested in programming. 

Its a worthy cause that in some ways lays down the seeds for the future and here's an infographic that looks at the journey from mainframes, that filled a whole room, to the PI.
