Low-Cost Raspberry Pi Computers Now Available in Bulk

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced plans to loosen restrictions on sales of its inexpensive computers and make them available in large quantities. The $35 credit-card-sized Linux machines proved very popular when first released in February. In addition Raspberry Pi experienced problems obtaining components, so it limited sales to one per customer. With the component problems resolved, the foundation is now letting schools and businesses buy its system in quantity. The computers, designed for use with a TV as a display and a keyboard for input, have 256 Mbytes of RAM and a 700-MHz ARM chip that runs the Fedora, Debian, or ArchLinux versions of Linux. Raspberry Pi began its project to interest more children worldwide in computer programming by providing them with an affordable PC. Its machine teaches users the Python programming language.
