Off and on I’ve talked about the Raspberry Pi computer. I want one. Badly. Why? Because it’s only 25 bucks, I am a computer minimalist by nature and could get along nicely with a little Pi box on my desktop. I’d have to add in a USB hub, mouse and monitor of course, but the point is the idea of an itty bitty box handling all your computer stuff for that cheap is just plain cool. If there were a way to do all that with a smartphone for that price, I’d entertain the idea of going for it. But you can’t. Not for 25 bucks.
The Pi is so small that the entire thing can be squeezed easily into a “case” made of nothing but LEGOs:
Seriously, how cool is that?
Can the “case” be bought? YES!
