I'm thinking a tiny aluminum housing, making using a flash stick as the hard drive. I wonder how small I could go?

Edit: just realized it uses SD storage. >.>

I dunno. Probably just do a project guide to attract traffic to the site.

I've wanted one for a while. Pretty nifty - comes with Raspian (sp?) which has Python on it already.

I can't decide what I would do with it. I saw someone use it as a printdock, he could send stuff to it through his phone and print it out.

Definitely a neat little toy, though.

That's pretty neat.

I don't know what I'd do with it either, but I'd start by making a fancy little holder for it.

There's a pretty good market for the cases ATM, if you come up with a sleek looking one I'd consider trying to sell them.

One of the things I wanted to do with this is make it battery powered. (probably 4 double AAs)
I'm sure most of us have seen those minty USB chargers - same concept. No idea how long it would last on this though.

I'de think that 4 AA rechargables would power it for at least an hour, hopefully more

just speculation, but @$25 it probably doesn't use much power

It's rated to consume 700mA, so about two and a half hours with standard alkali batteries. You could get much longer time out of a pair of 3v lithium batteries, for a smaller size as well.

I've ordered one, although I have no flippin' clue what I'm going to do with it.
Learn Python, I guess.

They're just so cool! I'm going to make a little oak case for mine.

The super raspberry pi computer is amazing. That's among the best things I've ever seen, even discounting the fact that it's made of legos.
I don't think he needs to be immortal. I think all he needs to do is to write the right story. Because some stories do live forever.

I haven't gotten one yet, I was waiting on the new series, which may well be out by now.
And yeah, it's pretty epic. >.>

Let us know what you figure out to do with yours. :)
