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.

£21.65 is actually US$34.51 at today's current exchange rate, so something odd is going on somewhere. However, $35 is £21.94 and if you add 20% to £21.94 you yet $26.34 which is as near as damn it $42. You either got charged VAT, or a 20% mark-up.


It turns out Farnell included shipping IN the price.
