Happy Pi Day: Buy a Raspberry Pi

Hope you all had a great Pi Day:

Pi Day

Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant pi (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the month/day

I celebrated Pi Day by buying a Raspberry Pi:

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. I will be using it for an upcoming electronic project mainly because I have wanted to learn Python for a while now and the price. This tiny computer has a built in SD-card reader, HDMI port, RCA out, Audio out, 2 USB, an Ethernet port and 512 Ram all for $35. If I were to use one of my standard microcontrollers I would have to pay extra for each additional feature. For example just to add Ethernet to an Arduino would cost $60 alone. These great little devices are allowing schools to affordably offer robotic and electronic circuitry classes.
