Re: Tablet.

Also, I am pretty sure something like this will use 2 usb ports in order to get a high enough current. Since an r-pi will only have 2 usb ports, I don't see how you'd get an external usb port. Perhaps bluetooth and wireless keyboard/mouse would make more sense.

one of those will set you back about $150-$200 and uses about 3W.

The speakers are already included, but it would take some creative hacking to get a usb port and a battery in there.

I have a linode VPS which is going to waste right now... I'd gladly donate it. If you don't have the time to manage and maintain it, I'd volunteer for that too. 'course you'd have root access.

Re: Power supply

Since R-Pi uses <1 W, at 7.4V that should be 130mA. 5200mAh/130mA=40 hours?

I am pretty sure I am wrong, 'cause 40 hours sounds a bit too good.

The thing that annoys me about it is that it doesn't track read posts properly and it doesn't always go to the last unread post when you open a thread. phpBB would be great.

Re: Power supply

Normally power supplies need an input that's a bit higher than the output. Since, there's a 5v switchmode supply on there, it sounds like that would have to be removed either way. Though that seems to conflict with what Eben said earlier about maybe brining the input voltage down to 5v.

Re: Power supply

Cafe, I think he was talking about the power supply circuit that's actually a part of the board. You still need an adapter to supply the 6-20v.

Re: Clustering

I think anyone who is buying these to 'cluster' them in order to get anything useful out of it is going to be disappointed. You're better off using the money to upgrade your desktop.

If they're doing it just because they can... well that's different.

Re: Secure Boot / OTP / Encrypted Boot

I am guessing that's not built into the chip, but since it's linux, you can always encrypt the root fs and decrypt it using an initrd image.

Re: Any plans to support WindowsCE?

ReactOS might be the closest bet, but I am not sure whether they support ARM.... and then there would probably be a lot of work required to get it running R-Pi as well.
