Submission + - HOT Raspberry Pi: A DIY Mini Desktop PC Build Project (

MojoKid writes: Hot Hardware recently set out to design a mini desktop computer with the popular Raspberry Pi single board computer. The Raspberry Pi is a Linux-driven, ARM processor-based micro computer that is known for its low cost and small size. People use the device for a variety of projects, from micro-servers to low cost media players. Basically, the goal was to turn what is currently one of the cheapest bare-bones computer boards into a fully enclosed mini desktop computer that could be taken anywhere without the need for cabling or setup. This small DIY project is just one of many examples of the flexibility of Raspberry Pi's open architecture. And to think you can even run Quake and Minecraft on a self-contained little device like this.
