Want a $25 Computer?

Illustration for article titled Want a $25 Computer?

This skeletal computer absolutely WILL NOT run Crysis. However, it will (just barely) get you up and running on the internet, and is so small it can dangle from your keychain (though I don't recommend it).

Equipped with a 700 MHz ARM 11 processor, 128 MB of RAM, a USB port, and room to add a webcam or wi-fi module, the Raspberry Pi is a shrunken down version of that Gateway computer you had over a decade ago, except it's just a circuit board...nothing else. But that computer didn't run Ubuntu 9, which I'd definitely take over Windows ME (and probably Windows 2000 as well).

Creator David Braben plans to sell it for $25, but still has to finalize manufacturing. [Raspberry Pi via BBC via CrunchGear]

how is this about gadgets?

how would a 700mhz arm11 processor compares to a 550 mhz pentium 3? cause i used to run adobe premier, 3ds max 5 and photoshop on the latter, with nice results as well,
