Seeing how the Raspberry Pi is still not readily available has anyone got a Begaleboard-XM, and if so what is their experience of it.

I know that it cost 120 which is more that the Raspberry Pi but is it worth the extra money?

And not even 2 weeks after your question the first batch of pre-ordered RPi's are being delivered Wink

I've been tempted by the Beagleboard (and likewise, the Arduino project) but price makes a huge difference, as is the (im)possibility to brick a device when tinkering with the wrong settings... Besides, I'm not a coding guy, I'd prefer chips (of the 'magic smoke' kind, in this case Razz) to solve a problem: if at first you don't succeed, add more pre-packaged transistors Wink

Price is the reason I was holding off getting the beagleboard. Hopefully the Raspberry Pi will be available soon as 25 is easier to justify on another computer than 125 for the Beagleboard.
