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.

Finally managed to force the belgian farnell site to accept my order. Hopefully they don't cancel it.

Seems like the preorder thing is now gone as well.

Anyway, superb that model A now also has 256MB of RAM!
Great job of Raspberry PI team to bring this to market. We don't need no 600$ thing that we can't mess around with.
Hopefully Farnell starts sending them out asap.
