Orbits IT are a provider of customer focused, cost effective IT services to SMEs, Charities and Public Sector bodies in South Wales. This site has been created to embrace what should be a revolution in low cost computing and will hopefully usher in an era of bedroom programmers/developers just like back in the ’80s, when we started on our path.

We will be updating with unique content as soon as we can get our hands on one or two of the devices. Until then we will bring you the best news from the Raspberry-Pi community.

      Without doubt. The model B board have a built in 10/100 ethernet controller and both boards have the option for using a compatible wifi controller. Then you just need to know your way around linux and get a browser going. Best of luck.

    This may sound a silly question but I am completely new to Raspberry Pi.

    I don’t have one yet but before I might get one I was wondering is it essential to have Broadband/any internet connection?

    I am wondering because where I live I am unable to get Broadband, and I only have a Mobile Dongle and the speed is only 2g so it is way less than 1MB!

    I wouldn’t say its essential to have broadband, but to get the best out of it you will want some form of internet.
