NEW PRODUCT – Raspberry Colored Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Computers. This compact, low-cost case by Cyntech is tailored to fit the Raspberry Pi board and provides openings for all the connectors.

What is the Raspberry Pi® ? A low-cost ARM GNU/Linux box.
The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The design is based on a Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 256 megabytes of RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. The Foundation plans to support Fedora Linux as the initial system software package/distribution, with support for Debian and Arch Linux as well – Wikipedia.
Raspberry Pi® is a trademark of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
