I have two (both model B version 2). You don't need a keyboard/mouse/monitor for each one once you have the network set up. Headless operation from your Windows/Ubuntu machine works as well or better than direct connection to HDMI... but you have to do it the hard way initially to build the boot disk (SD card) and set up the network.

I also bought the 5V micro USB charger from the vendor (Newark), by which I avoided an entire class of problems. I understand from the masses that the main problems with the RPi involve power.

I am also building a project where I will run it headless off network and built my own power supply, which works fine. It is not power hungry but needs at least 700 mA, which most phone chargers do not supply.

Have fun with it! I haven't run out of things to do with it yet...
