That Brit-built £22 computer: Yours for just £1,900 or more

With great power...

comes great power consumption.

While the Arduino runs on a typical 26mA (connected to the power supply) the Rasperry Pi sucks from 300mA (model A) to 700mA (model B). That enough to power a lot of Arduinos...

I know which one I'd rather have around a battery. You can easily power an Arduino from a smallish, cheap solar panel, which is good news for most of the developing world.

So not a fair comparison.
