PlayStation3 - The Most Powerful Gaming Console in the Planet
Generally Gaming consoles are designed so that foreign systems can't run on them, but PS3 goes in the total opposite direction, allowing an experienced Linux user to personalize their system. Most gaming systems are "locked" so that other systems can't be run, so PS3 is unconventional in allowing this.
What's really cool about the Playstation 3 is that - it's the same processor used in some of the high end IBM systems. That means you can use the PS3 as a Fun, Game Playing console as well as the front end of super computing systems for larger performance like ,Game development, Internet programs, Open Office, Movies and other type of functionality we have in our Desktops.The only thing you can't do on the PS3 is run accelerated graphics.
