Pi board that are intended for general I/O use. The more expensive
option with ethernet and double the memory will still be good value
at 35 USD. The power supply is going to be a standard cheap mini USB
5v laptop/mobile phone supply.
I for one cannot wait to see the ingenuity people come up with once
this hits the streets, very soon now. People carrying disposable PCs
in their pockets, trying out all kinds of craziness.

A limited batch of ten boards being sold to raise funds. If the project is a success or a failure, these boards will have historic value and maybe some bidders are speculating.
the cheapest is about £550, the most expensive about £2100 at the time of this message.
Apparently the production boards are due out next month
Happy bidding, if you're lucky enough to be able to afford them !
