Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

RE[3]: Only for companies?

Member since:

I'm no expert, but I'd guess you possibly paid VAT (sales TAX) at 20% (current UK rate.) You might want to verify that, as you will potentially get stung again when importing this item unless you can prove you already paid Tax on it. You may also be able to claim the Tax back as a non EU resident.

(This is based on (35 * 1.20 == 42) .. might just be a coincidence of course.)
