Anyone know of anywhere local that sells these apart from Maplins (which seems a little pricey)?

Was looking at using it as low power media centre/file server/retro gaming emulation/etc.

Move a clunky PC out of the way laugh

Anyone got one/used one?
Thoughts/opinions?

Speak to Gibbo on here he has at least one and might be looking to flog it, or could get one cheap.

If you can afford the extra, go for a Tegra. We've got one here at work and it pees all over the Pi performance wise.

Working desktop from cold in four seconds.

tegra are more than 30... the idea of the pi is to be lowe powered and not cost the earth
