Submission + - First Batch Of £16 Raspberry Pi PCs Arrives (itproportal.com)

hypnosec writes: It seems fitting that the first batch of Raspberry Pi computers landed in the UK in the hands of school children based in Leeds as what many consider as another wave of grass-root computing revolution, another BBC Micro 2.0, begins. The Raspberry Pi has been designed from scratch to get anyone interested in computer programming to do so without forking out much; the base unit can connect to a television like the Commodore C64 or the Sinclair ZX81. According to the BBC, the first batch has been presented by Eben Upton today, the school project coordinator, in an event held at the Leeds offices of Premier Farnell, one of the official PI distributors.
