Things you will need
The first thing you want to do is buy a Class 10 8 GB SD Card, a HDMI cable, a Ethernet
You format the SD because the Pi does not have any internal memory. The format should not be more than 2GB.
Then once you have formatted the SD card on your laptop you should put the card in the SD slot and power the Pi up! Then you should download XBMC and install it onto your Pi.
