Wow, this is very exciting to see. $35 for a mini PC? Sign me up. Would be a neat piece of hardware to mess with.

I'm pretty excited to see a smaller solution for an entire server or workstation. Heck, in 5 years, who knows how much power we can pack in such a small device.

MC requires a lot of RAM, so 256MB isn't going to do the trick. It may run the client though.

Very cool. I'd definitely pick up one for $35.

I was thinking of some ideas or purposes for these little guys:

Pi + TV or Monitor = Nice display of weather, traffic and other info.
Test Linux machine.

$35 my a$$

No. 1 is currently at $5,420

Are the retail units going to use all full size ports? Smaller is better in this scenario.
