The Raspberry Pi is an ARM powered, credit card sized computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation for educational and hobbyist purposes. The low power computer is mass produced at very low prices and the high number of units sold gives it massive community support. As an XBMC HTPC, the Pi supports full 1080P video playback, supports most major codecs, most if not all XBMC add-ons, and a reasonably responsive GUI.
