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.

According to my receipt there was no VAT, and my card hasn't been charged yet. The ~$42 I referred to was from looking up the current exchange rate and applying it to the price as quoted in GBP on the order page.

Once my card is charged I'm sure there will be a VAT amount on there too. I knew there was no way I'd get this thing for $35 anyway, but it's still an awesome deal!
