I'm not holding my breath regarding it!  Problem is I want/need a low power, always on computer for data logging/monitoring and doing a bit of processing. 

The reason I wanted a Pi was that the model B only uses about 700 mA or 3.5w, compared to a PC consuming about 100w. A Pi with an external HDD attached to it would only require about 25w which is why I was so eager to get hold of one.

I was looking at a 12DC to ATX power supply, but these are limited to about 150-200w and quite expensive at approx £30-40.  Same price as a Pi.

Not as cheap (at £79-odd), but what about one of these?

Hello Clivejo, it only just arrived from CPC, had a bit of a time just to get a screenshot  Angry
However the picture on a Samsung 40" is ok, I think the fonts need changed though, they don't look that sharp.
I will just use it for experiments, maybe that will lead to it finding a permanent job  Smiley
