Having said that, I think they could have done with adding more memory. It's not the fastest memory in the world, so it`s very cheap. 1GB would have been comfortably enough to run a normal Linux distro.

Ahah, some looking about answers that question. It`s a very specific packaging of memory (package on package, 168 ball grid array, LPDDR2) to fit the size and power usage requirements. The price rises very sharply for 512MB and I couldn`t even find one above that.

Wtf?? That is so cheap! How is it so cheap???


They are making no profit at all. They're a registered charity, selling the product at cost. They`ve also kept it to the essentials only. Hence the lack of any casing, the lack of a clock, the small amount of memory (256MB), etc.

That is so friggin cool. I whole hearted support this. I love the fact that they leave that one port open IO pins. They leave room for you to customize and and control how powerful your little pi can be. Brilliant. Bravo good sirs, bravo.
