    ...operation H is always more promising, though I would ask for more money... :)

    Eh our tech club just got 20 of the Model Bs. At least there isn't a 2.0 just yet... that would have made me pretty mad.
     
  4. Lol, with all extensions 2-3x highest price than normal PC or Tablet.

    This can not be compared to the average consumer product. Your laughter only makes me laugh at you, for trying to make a product what it is not.

    Although you wouldn't be buying it, if it was gifted.

    I wish raspberry pi is openly sold at more stores. some individuals in the Philippines bought the product and resold it for relatively large profit margin.
    also, is raspberry pi already sold in the u.s.a.'s popular e-stores? (newegg, tigerdirect, amazon, bestbuy)
    (sold out on raspberry pi's own website)

    I'm still laughing!

    Seriously though, can someone translate the comment above me. Looks to me they are saying an iPhone internals only cost $10. It is the casing that cost $590. Which I find irrelevant because the Raspberry PI is sold without a case.
