Arduino Specifics? Answered

Could someone please explain exactly what an Arduino is and some details about it.

e.g. cost, common uses, where to get one, etc

From what I can understand (and I'm not sure if this is all correct) an Arduino is some sort of programmable multipurpose micro-controller, and it controls  different electronic components (servos, motors, etc) following some pre-set program. Is this correct?

(Side Note: This is my first ever post to the Instructables forums...so yay!)
