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.


Lol, with all extensions 2-3x highest price than normal PC or Tablet.


I wouldnt buy this even if they gifted it! Where would I plug my AMD 7970?!

In case someone wondered...

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)

Always read 35$ 35$ 35$ but nobody told you the adapter 10$ meanwhile same adapter in same shop without RPi label 1$.
A simple plastic case 20-30$

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.
