For just $35, you get a PC that is capable of booting a streamlined install of Linux - and there are plenty of uses for the Raspberry Pi which makes it the perfect buy for modders and tweakers. In order to celebrate, the company have released a pretty cool infographic detailing a bunch of stats on the device - for example, if the Raspberry Pi's were stacked end-to-end, they would be higher than 111 Empire State Buildings.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
