[citation][nom]Dangi[/nom]SSD ?? Really ??You use de SD as the booting device, you can change to usb, but as far as I know it doesn't have Sata port to put a SSD disk[/citation]
Correct at this time it can only boot from the SD Card. USB, or network attached storage can be accessed once the OS is loaded.
I have about 75$ invested to get my Pi 43$ flat shipped to the US from UK, + Accessories... neat little device... i don't know a ton about Linux/programming but plan to learn... it does play Quake 3 and NES emulator! haha... http://mitchtech.net/category/tutorials/raspberry-pi/
[citation][nom]Dangi[/nom]USB 2.0 and only 2 ports.But as said before SD is a MUST to run Rasperry Pi, try class 10 SD cards if you feel that the boot is slow. That shouldn't be more much slower than USB 2.0[/citation]
I actually read somewhere that the Raspberry Pi was having problems with class 10 cards. These issues may have been ironed out by now, but it's worth checking into before buying a card. If they have been fixed, then by all means, yes, buy a class 10 SD card.
