WTH is a Raspberry Pi? Yo es muy confused.
It's a low cost, low power computing platform thats about credit card sized.
An all in one board with cpu, ram, network, hdmi, audio out and sd card slot. The sd card is the only boot option. The card and usb drives can be used for storage.
Designed to run various linux distributions.
My wife ordered me one for Christmas from Element 14, and it actually arrived. I was surprised to find it under the tree. Right now it's sitting in my office. I'm running a little Lighttpd/PHP server with Dokuwiki, Mumble Server, and MPD/MPC to stream some Shoutcast stations in the office (using OrangePlayer so I'm not in the CLI all the time).
I've been thinking about picking one up. It looks like a cool platform. I do have an arduino that I mess around with.
I was thinking about selling mine. Its the rev. 2 with 512mb of ram.

Can't do it now as I am still recovering from holiday spending. But I will shoot you a PM before I ever pull the trigger on one and see where you stand. Thanks.
Thanks for the warning!
I use a PicoITX machine for a digipeater. It runs on 12 volts, but it's a little sensitive to voltage fluctuations. I'd run it from a car battery, but I'd be afraid it'll reboot every time I crank the starter
They keep going out of stock theirs a lot of demand for them. It was hard to get the two i ordered on I have to my uncle. I can't you figure out how to use it what problems are you having?
I have an Arduino too but arduino is a micro-controller fun as it is the raspberry pi is more of a working computer. Although you can combine the arduino and raspberry pi for some projects.
I got a TI Launch pad instead. http://www.ti.com/ww/en/launchpad/home_head.html?DCMP=Value_Line&HQS=launchpad
Speaking of TI, I'm shocked that I havent seen these guys put to some kind of cool use.
TI are micro-controller's not the same as raspberry pi however you got my interest i usually use arduino or beagleboard for a micro-controller. I haven't tried any of the TI how is it and do they use Basic or what language is used?
I haven't even got around to playing with it yet so I can't be of much help http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP430_LaunchPad_(MSP-EXP430G2) theres the wiki on one come to think of it I must refind it in my massive junk closet. http://hackaday.com/2010/06/22/ti-makes-a-big-bid-for-the-hobby-market/ As for the PI here is a cool project with one http://hackaday.com/2010/06/22/ti-makes-a-big-bid-for-the-hobby-market/
I got one in August, got it running very quickly but still haven't worked out what to do with it
For the hackaday linke (love that site btw lol) you need to use Obj. C to program it. You make have just made me spend some more cash lol I'll have to look at the other links and check it out seems like an interesting fun project.
I like to think of things I can have or afford at the moment for projects. I want to build a full-size arcade system running on a tiny raspberry pi. I have a background in carpentry as well as in technology. To do the authentic controls I joined a forum the specifically builds and teaches about arcade controllers.(never will replace EDCF thought ). Try something you like and do it different lol
The cool thing is you can create a "smart" tv on the cheap. I have ours setup in the bedroom, and I can use it to check the wifi cam we use as a baby monitor, or go to the home screen and check the weather before dressing in the morning.
If you have a computer in a different room than your TV, you can stream content from your computer to your TV pretty easily, either via the hdmi or RCA. I ripped all my DVDs to AVI files, and whenever we want to watch something, we stream it to the raspberry PI running raspbmc. Works great and was pretty easy to set up...Bought a second one to do the same thing in the exercise room. If I could get netflix to stream to it, I would be in hog heaven. Cuts down on wear and tear on the movies if you have little kids who want to watch videos all the time.
If you dont want to stream movies, you can get an external hard drive and hook it up to watch movies that way as well.
You using a wireless keyboard/trackpad combo. Great for being in bed Lol.

Hey, got an email sayings it will be here tomorrow morning (Sadly I will not). Anyway, I been upgraded to the 512MB Revision 2 board whatever that means. Good thing?
