I may have to get one to play with but the lack of onboard ethernet is a limitation for the sorts of use I already put several Raspberry Pis to.

It won't be able to play CoD whatever it's called.

We're at the point where we can have a fully-functioning PC on a circuit board the size of a credit card. Just add a monitor, mouse, keyboard and (optional) external storage. The only limiting factor is the size of the connectors, and soon the computer will cost less than the cables.

That's the size of the new Macbook Air circuit board. The rest of the case is battery.

I think you're missing the point slightly, most of these don't get sold to run as a replacement for your pc, they tend to be used in electronics projects or as controllers for other bits of kit.

Or in the case of the PI it's actually very good at playing HD video and I hear with the CPU upgrades the PI2 got the UI lag that the PI had when running Kodi is no longer an issue.

Schools use these to educate children in the art of programming and are cheap as chips.

Might get them to design a GUI that is better than W8 and variants.

They designed it so that each student could have their own memory card with the operating system and their software and data on it. All that they need to do is insert it into a Pi and boot. Brilliant!

Why, then, did they switch from the SD format to micro-SD when they designed the Pi 2? They are amazingly easy to mislay and impossible to identify. Gah!
