That is one description.  Another would be it is a fully functional
linux computer with LAN, HDMI, SVideo, Audio, USB, Serial, and a GPIO
bus with the footprint of a credit card, no moving parts which draws
only 2-3 watts for US$35.

My pi units run various processes such as NTP, web hosting and data IO
at a fraction of the cost of conventional hardware.  Step changes in
computing technology are pretty rare.  Having developed on them a couple
of months, I put the pi into that category.

Oh yes, and the silence of the pi's is worth the US$35 alone.

It really depends if you prefer your glass to be half full or half empty

The Raspberry Pi is basically a headless PDA, using smart phone type
processors.  It is optimised for power consumption, not speed.
