Raspberry Pi is a cheap single-board computer that runs Linux and many other operating systems. It was made for educational purposes but now it can be used as HTPC (home theater PC) or a server. It can even be used for retro-gaming. It is very useful for users starting with Linux. The board costs only 35$ but a charger (sold separately) is needed.
