Here’s the board in all it’s glory. The first 10,000 boards to ship are bare but later Raspberry Pi computers will include a case.
Two versions of the board are being sold, the model B selling at $40 and the model A, which will be slightly cheaper when it goes on sale later this year. Unlike the model B the model A will not have a 10/100 Ethernet port and only has one USB port.
The tiny board truly lives up to its description as being a credit card sized computer, no longer than a USB stick and easily big enough to fit into a pocket.

The chip contains an ARM 11 processor running at 700MHz and a Videocore 4 GPU, which can play Blu-ray quality video and render 3D graphics.
