Too bad that many of them will end up in the hands of resellers which will then attempt to sell them for $40 on Amazon.

I want to create decided HTPC based on this low-powered cheap Raspberry Pi Model A, Raspberry Pi foundation should help and put out more guides.
At this point, it is very price friendly, but I just don't know what to do with it.
Yes, I lack imagination.

Yeah, not sure what you'd do with it without both wifi and a way to control with keyboard/mouse/remote. Possibly get a USB stick that has both wifi and BT functionality, but otherwise...?

You can add wifi, or ethernet, heck the Ethernet chip on model b ran through the usb. All you need is a usb hub and a usb wifi stick and your good to go.

Thinking about getting these for my nephews, wondering if anyone has created a basic computer science guide to go along with it. I know I would pony up some cash for that.

Nice, the second one isn't even released yet, I think I may pick up the first guide you listed and run through it myself. So far from the preview it looks like it has a good balance between easy introductory material and hardcore CS goodness.

I have the Model B 1rst revision. I use a 4 port powered USB hub, you can use a cable from the hub to power the Pi, and the other 3 slots on the hub work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GFGOANSZ-4
