The Raspberry Pi is a full computer. It
has a processor, graphics processor, and
memory, just like a normal computer or
laptop – it’s just a lot smaller.
The Raspberry Pi can be used in any
situation a computer could be used. This
can be as simple as being used as your
desktop computer, or plugged into a

special laptop shell. Other people use
them as mini servers in their house, as
media computers for their TV, or as tiny
computers to power their fun projects. It
could be the brains of a robot, control a
vegetable garden, or even just blink a light.
The possibilities with Raspberry Pi are
limited only by your imagination.
