Its a small, low power consumption, 'computer', good for a lot of hobbyist projects.I have already had a scan through here. I still don't really understand haha
Well the basic idea was to give people access to a PC for as cheap as possible for parts of the world where a PC costs way too much compared to what people earn.

I totally agree with you my friend. I am currently a little busy at the moment learning other things.L E A R N...
All computers do the same thing, some faster than others, but they all process 1's and 0's. The Raspberry Pi is probably the best platform for learning without going to University. Learning about Raspberry Pi will lead a person towards 'Telling Computers What To Do'.
I bought my first computer from the drug store across the street from the house in 1983. It was a Sinclair ZX81 I was 24 years old and wanted to break out of blue collar work and do something with computers but I only had a high school education and no computer experience.
I began learning how to tell my ZX81what to do and in 1984, just one year after purchasing the ZX81, I acquired a job as a sales representative in the cash register business. I was now in the computer industry. In 1994 I became the President of the company. Learning how to tell computers what to do can be very rewarding.
I purchased my first Raspberry Pi in 2012 and received two of the units made in China. I still run these units today as security cameras running RPi_Cam_Web_Interface. That learning project has allowed me to build a 16 camera security surveillance system for an 18 acre nursery and garden center using three commercial grade WiFi Bridges to capture signals from RPi Zero W camera rigs using PiJuice battery backup. I have now built a solar powered RPi Zero W camera rig using the 40W PiJuice Solar panel and 12,000mAh battery.
I have enjoyed many other learning projects on the Raspberry Pi and some of those are also destined to be commercial products that I provide. Here are juat a few more:
...just to name a few.
- Network Area Storage using Open Media Vault (OMV)
- Media Center using Open Source Media Center (OSMC)
- Legacy Gaming Console using Retropie
- Internet Pop-up blocker using PiHole
- Drones, air and underwater
- Weather Balloon Photography
- Wildlife Photo Traps
- In-Car Entertainment/Sensor Control System
- Bicycle safety sensors, lights, and controls
- Multi-room/multi-area audio from a single source
I hope you find something of interest for your Raspberry Pi learning experience.
