Mark: There is one disadvantage to making a calculator out of micro's as powerful as the Raspberry Pi and Arduino... Power consumption. It requires half an amp at 5Volts to run the Raspberry Pi, and The Arduino is better but won't run long on batteries either. There are powerful LOW POWER development boards out there. I have some links if you are interested. I have done a lot of experimenting with the Raspberry PI it's a lot of fun, because there are so many fellow developers out there to help you get unstuck if you have a problem. I got an email today saying that they just released the new Raspberry Pi 2 with a gig of RAM and a quad core CPU that runs 6 times faster than the original Raspberry Pi all for the same $35.00 price tag. Amazing! The Raspberry Pi 2 has the 4 USB ports, and the same footprint and pinouts as the Raspberry Pi B+ released a few months ago.
