Kind of a Mini PC Influx! Size of Computers have been shrinking for years, and the revolution has only accelerated in recent times. One of the most revolutionary and mind boggling idea is that of a credit card sized computer system. Believe it or not Raspberry Pi is a palm size (lightweight) computer, with real computing chops.
It’s an open board powered by components usually found in smartphones, not computers, and it even draws power via a Micro-USB connection—just like mobile devices.
It can run several varieties of Linux, and the Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU is powerful enough to output 1080p video without a hitch, making this $35 mini-PC a viable home theater PC option.
Other common applications includes installing it as a music system or a automatic timer, a security alarm etc.
By now you must have got a bit of idea, on this powerful yet small sized machine. So check this video that shows Top 10 Coolest Raspberry Pi Projects
