Raspberry Pi's $35 Linux computer on track to launch later

The first model of the Raspberry Pi Foundation's low-cost Linux computer will likely be available for purchase later this month. The organization announced today that manufacturing on the first batch is set to complete on February 20.

The $35 computer, which is a bare board the size of a deck of playing cards, has a 700MHz ARM11 CPU and 256MB of RAM. A second model with lower specs will eventually be released for $25. According to a statement issued today by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the $35 model will probably be available for purchase by the end of the month unless there are additional production delays.

With all the press it's been getting, I still don't think I'll be able to grab one in time, but we'll see. It would be my first ARM dev board, I've spent a lot of time messing around with Arduino though. I want a Beagle Board, but the cheapest (the Beagle Bone) is still just out of reach at $90.
