Not the original, but the model B+ with 4 USB ports. Still the "go-to" standard in single-board computers.
At first, the Raspberry Pi (aka: "RaspPi") didn't appeal to us much. We've got enough old hardware with more features that's been retired out of useful day-to-day usage. It wasn't until we actually booted one up and did some real work with it. Web browsing? Cool, but a bit slow. Doing Arduino development? Sure, but again, nothing spectacular. It was when we started messing around with the Raspberry Pi camera and the video playback that it really started to shine. Then light bulbs started going off, and we started testing out other lower-level features. Added wifi. Added our handiest Linux hacks to the OS. It...all right here, in the palm of my hand, running off a battery!
What a nice little computer. And what a bargain price for what you get! Now we've seen the light, and are on the RaspPi bandwagon.
For those of you still wondering what we're going on about, the Raspberry Pi is a tidy, single-board computer. About credit card-sized, it's what you plug a USB keyboard, mouse, and HDMI monitor into to turn into a computer. For cheap. And being Linux-based, it's super flexible in what you can load up into it.
Still not entirely sure what you can do with it? Search the intarwebs, and you will be impressed with the wide, wide range of applications people have found for this tiny, fully-functional computer.
We're now also selling 4GB SD cards with the "New Out Of the Box" (NOOBS) image. Ideal for quick "Pick and go" distribution loading for your new Raspberry Pi.
