When you mentioned that the RPis are general computer computers, it really resonated with me that they are also ideal for an "always on" computer due to their low power consumption.

Pis or Pi's

I'd have added an apostrophe to the plural of Pi, but it's generally thought to be wrong (even though espeak then pronounces it in the non-urinary way). I have seen someone suggest it should be "Raspberries Pi" but that seems silly.

Pis or Pi's

The apostrophe is definitely wrong, but as a screen-reader user this is a thing I struggle with constantly when writing pages and blog posts. Writing Pis definitely gives a pronunciation that is undesirable. May be it would have been easier if Ebben Upton hadn't made the mistake of calling it a Pi instead of a Py. The Pi part was supposed to be short for Python but, hard to believe, he got it wrong
