Made in the UK Brand New Boxed units, these

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer board
that plugs into a TV or Monitor. It’s a miniature ARM-based PC which can be
used for many of the tasks that a desktop PC carries out, including
spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It is also capable of playing

footprint for camera connection As of 04/06/13 all our cards will be pre installed with NOOBS for the Raspberry Pi.
NOOBS = New Out Of Box Software, it is a way to make setting up a Raspberry Pi for the first time much, much easier.
Operating Systems on the Card:
- Raspbian - The recommended OS for the Pi
- RaspBMC - Media centre software optimized for the Pi
- Pidora - Fedora remix optimized for the Pi
- OpenELEC - Media centre software
- RiscOS - Good for users to experiment and tinker.
- ArchLinux - Simple and powerful for competent Linux users
When you boot up for the first
time, you’ll see a menu prompting you to install one of several
operating systems into the free space on the
card. The choice means you can boot the Pi with a regular operating
system like Raspbian, or with a media-centre specific OS like RaspBMC.
Once you’ve installed an operating system, your Pi will boot as normal.
However, NOOBS stays resident on your card, so by holding shift down
during boot you can return to the recovery interface. This allows you
to switch to a different operating system, or overwrite a corrupted card
with a fresh install of the current one; it also provides a handy tool
to let you edit the config.txt configuration file for the currently
installed operating system, and even a web browser so you can visit the
forums or Google for pointers if you get stuck.
