funny and good idea I hadn;t thought about using the Rasp pi like this
rPi is a cool device - will it work for what you want it to? Probably. You 'll need an external screen though, because working from the tv will kill your eyes fast
Yea hopefully it will work. Just thought I'd give it a go seeing as it's cheap - before I saw it I was planning to build my pc one component at a time. #hardtimes
Yea I plan to rig it up to a pc monitor - it's going in the office. Only trouble is my screen only has VGA and not sure you can convert hdmi to VGA ?
Anyway, hopefully it'll work out ok anything must be better than my Celeron D !
neh... personally would not like a rPi or something like that. I have a noisy PC but is beneath the desk so not very loud in practice. For silent low-wattage would go for (and I did for the local linux server) a MiniITX. MiniITX with a passive cooler if you get Atom CPU or big-ass silent cooler if a more high end CPU. My linux server has stock fan + a shitty 80mm fan on case (low flow but at least is silent). You can only hear any noise from it if you put your eat at 20cm from the case. Consumes like 40W in idle and 70 in load (Core2Duo, 2GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Mini ITX board, 120W power supply)
^^ Linux server ay, that's cool
Obviously it depends what your requirements are - I use a pc all day and night but I only do email web and remote support (rdp and logmein). I don't play games/listen to music or do anything demanding directly from my pc, so hopefully this will suit me.
Just looked up miniITX, they look cool as well, I might build one when I have a bit more cash
This is an awesome little gadget. Thanks for sharing!
Been looking around at what's actually possible with this little thing and it looks super cool, here's a brief video introduction to Raspberry Pi:
And here are a few cases for those that are interested:
Android 4.0 ported to Raspberry Pi:
Thanks for posting that video, now I'm even more excited about getting it
Really seems like a pretty amazing bit of kit!
Exactly, it's so cheap. Only challenge will be getting my inkjet working over Linux+rdp!
It's cool but I don't think it's going to replace my quad processor anytime soon!
Lol, your right about that. But then I can get a quad core vps pretty cheap
I just think the future is getting away from having a big pc in your house when you can have your environment hosted- obviously it depends on your needs, if you play games and so on, a remote environment won't work.
yeh its kind of neat - but really cant see it being used when power is required - Could be wrong - Time will tell
^^ I'm the opposite, I have a 27" screen at work but I prefer my 14.1" laptop screen
You should check out JackPC. They have a really cool line of thin clients.

Doesn't look cheap though, and they have no price guide. ^^
Yea I've seen that jack pc before, that's definitely the future of business IT. But I bet it's expensive.
Btw just realised I posted the wrong link for the case I ordered, here it is:
I thought you did... though the above seems to be wrong too... :| lol
I've been on the waiting list for one of those for months now. Recently received an email stating that they would deliver in 11 weeks time. I can't wait.
