Raspberry Pi


#21

So would lots of people but its designed to be low cost…


#22

if you like the raspberry pi but are disappointed in it’s “lack” of power/features then look at the dozens of other similar size devices, i.e., cubox, trim-slice etc

(the 2 I mentioned don’t have usb 3.0 but they both have a 1gb ethernet port)

any of these items with dual ethernet ports?

EDIT: okay found this but seriously only a 200 MHz processor and they want near $200

you could always consider getting a micro board/case with whatever you need for about the same price

not sure what you’d need 2 ethernet ports for but the cubox has a gigabit ethernet and an esata connector, I’m sure there has to be a way to use esata as an ethernet port

How can people whine about a 35$ device that can do this: http://www.raspbmc.com/

I am trying to find a low cost computer to use as a router because all the routers I can find are just shit anymore

The device is great for what it is but is not for everything


#28

Consumer grade routers are a bit shitty, if you can afford it just get a business router.


#29

There are hundreds of options you could use around the net for an embedded/small router platform. Make a new thread if you want something more dedicated to that :stuck_out_tongue:

Also, wrt usb3 not even the current gen intel chipsets have it onboard so it’s not going to be around for a while yet on a SoC solution like this.


#30

I haven’t kept up with router technology myself as the best internet I can get currently is 50mbit (and my wrt54gl can handle that), but the asus black diamond, albeit a little pricey, is said to be a decent performer over wireless and lan


#31

Might be getting one from work to play around with, but I don’t know for sure.


#32

According to an email from Farnell I’ll be getting mine in mid May… yay…


#33

Just ordered mine from element 14/Farnell, I’m expecting an email from them in a couple days with an approximate delivery date, can’t expect it to arrive any time soon though :frowning:


#34

Ooh, I’ve been looking for one to run my web server and media server on, couldn’t find a place to buy, I’ve found this page: http://downloads.element14.com/raspberryPi1.html
But no order link? The only order link there is for the accessories…

Ah I see, I’d already done that a week ago, cheers.


#37

You can buy it from the links like I posted earlier.


#38

When I got home from work today my Raspberry Pi was waiting for me. It’s even smaller than I imagined, at it looks awesome. I haven’t even got to plug it in yet, I’ll keep you guys updated, but probably won’t be able to do much until tomorrow night at least.

Anyone else get their’s yet?


#39

Nice double post…


#40

Still waiting in the queue :frowning:
