talladega is right those holes are mounting points for through hole components.
Someone has started an e-petition about these dumb import duty rules. Sign up now:
confusis has made a SketchUp model of the RaspberryPi (Model B):
This looks really interesting, although will it be able to cope with 1080p playback? (someone earlier stated it would, which surprises me)
Regardless would be an excellent basis for the pc connected to the projector at home, which is only 720p anyways...
The Broadcom SoC at the device's heart had hardware decode capabilities - I've actually watched one play back 1080p h.264 in the 'flesh,' so I can guarantee that it copes just fine.
I wonder how much #3142 will go for...
Yep, apparently the Quake 3 demo was on 1080p. Crazy if so.
There is a video on YouTube. Looks pretty smooth.
The kicker is that a similar performance in 1999 took a £800,-- gaming rig (remember those heady days of Pentium II's and the GeForce 256?). Now it takes a credit-card size PC costing about £20,--!
I remember looking at my very first PC, a Pentium 100MHz, not long before it died thinking 'this was as good as it got when it was new... now i can buy a phone that's more powerful than this...'
Indeed, it's pretty awesome how things have come on
