Any experience of a Raspberry Pi

My DD has just started secondary school and has been put into an 'extension' group for maths and computing. One recommendation from the teacher is that they buy a 'Raspberry Pi' if possible. I have had a look on line and they are £25, so doable for a birthday present (next week) - but what would she do with it? Not many details on-line apart from that it helps children learn to programme.

Has anyone got any experience of these and are they challenging for a bright child?

Meglet, yes exactly but on Linux.
I only use it to stream tv and movies, but it's very cool.

Before anyone gets their pants hoiked, stream not download.

I have bought my DS a kit one for Christmas, plus a Dummies guide to a Raspberry Pi and a magazine Raspberry Pi for Children.

Not looked in detail but this looks good for that age group. I Remember having something similar for my ZX81- many years ago. (Went on to get a degree in Electronic Engineering!)
