Raspberry Pi

We could’ve put a photo of the actual product, but its case-less appearance and credit card size make it a little underwhelming. Don’t let that fool you, though: the Raspberry Pi is a fully functional computer, powered by a 700mhz processor, a pretty decent graphics card, and connects to your peripherals using its various ports. The OS (Linux) runs off an SD card and, surprisingly, the Pi easily handles intensive processes such as playback of 1080p video.

The clincher? This “B” version will only run you 35$ (or 25$ for a later-released, slightly stripped-down “A” model). Check out Amazon or Raspberry Pi to find out more – $29+
