This is the kit I've been looking for! It combines some electronics with some programming and networking, and the results are outstanding.
Possibilities are endless!
First of all, this is not for a person who lacks in basic computing skills. This is more for the person who wants to make a computer do things, program it, and have some fun.
I use mine for multiple things. Firstly, I've installed Apache and I am currently running a web server on my Pi. I have then port forwarded the ports so that my web pages can be accessed from anywhere! (I've linked mine to a domain)
Next, I've installed Motion, connected in a USB web cam, and boom! I'm streaming live video which can be accessed from anywhere also (thanks to port forwarding)
Next, is the electronics end. The GPIO pins are really cool. You can use basic jumper wires to a bread board and program your components there. Or, you can dig deeper and buy some ad-ons. It's cool to wire up a little LED circuit, write a little sequence script and run it (by programming it in Python). Really fun for any computer nerd.
If you are planning on buying one, ask yourself 'What do I want it for?". This is not a computer for your web browsing or email. This is for the nerd, who wants to mess around!
I love mine, and I am definitely going to buy a second one in the coming months!
If you are buying one, make sure to do your research, and buy a chunk of patience! Make sure you research SSH, and FTP as you will generally end up running your Pi headless (i.e Not using a monitor, but accessing the command link over the network)
Feel free to ask me questions.
I've moved to UK and have nothing else to be connected to the internet then my non-smart Nokia 210. After a month I got a job and after another bought RPi, because it's affordable and everyone has a TV. I needed some cheap keyboard, memory card and cables. The only problem with everyday net-surfig was inabillity of playing flash. That means no online videos, some websites were redirecting me to their phone version. But anyway, I wouldn't need any kind of laptop for 10x more money and much more than I could afford to spend that time.
For everyone I can recomend Awesome. Awesome is tiling window manager. And is truly awesome. It's something like graphical enviroment, like LXDE, which uses Raspbian. LXDE is labeled as light-weigh and it is. On normal pc. On RPi feels very heavy. With awesome is work nice and smooth again. Tiled windows are question of habit. I like it and now I have laptop with gnome and I'm tiling all the windows anyway.
Most of smartphones are at least three times as expensive and with two times better hardware but with RPi you can do uncountable more things. Speaking frankly, you can do everything!
