Has anyone purchased a Raspberry Pi?

I'm considering getting one (or 2-3, at that price) to make an Internet-only Linux system for visitors. What type of performance can you get from this thing for Internet use. does it handle video OK (Flash-type videos)?

Also, how much video memory does this thing have?? I'm a bit concerned that 256MB may not be enough to do anything, even if you use the distro they suggest on their site (the Debian-type distro).

Ideas or thoughts?

Well they recently just upgraded the Type B's to 512 of memory which is a good change. As for your other questions.......no clue. I've been thinking about picking one up but have no idea what I'd use it for so....

I am picking one up to use an HTPC. It can handle 1080p videos, its got 2 usb ports, and the ultra low power usage rocks. Just buy a small case for it and velcro it and an IR reciever to your TV.
