Raspberry Pi, Model B, Complete Kit
Low-power, embeddable Linux computer with the accessories you need to get up and going
Sealed, new in box, in stock and ready to ship NOW

This is a Raspberry Pi Model B low-power, small-form-factor computer. This fanless computer has no moving parts and is perfect for embedded projects and applications where low power consumption and no acoustic noise is ideal. Its digital and analog GPIO pins give you an interface to sensors, motors, LEDs, and other circuits in the outside world.

Project ideas:
  • Home server
  • Robotics
  • Media center/XBMC (the RasPi has hardware accelerated smooth decoding of MPEG-4, hi-def at 1080p)
  • Router
  • Home automation
  • Home security
  • Off-the-grid (low power ⇒ suited to solar)

This computer runs on the ARM CPU architecture. That means it WON'T run Microsoft Windows and is intended for advanced commercial, industrial, and educational users and hobbyists who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty! This kit comes with 2GB of flash storage, a network cable, video cables, and a power supply. Insert the flash card, plug in the cables, and it's ready to boot. All you'll need is a USB keyboard and a display (a TV or computer monitor with either an HDMI or a DVI connection).

Own the coveted geek toy of 2012! If you order this unit from the usual distribution channels, expect long delays as the official distributors get their production up and rolling (this one took 3 months). This RasPi is in my possession NOW, sealed in its original box. (The accessories are also mostly new; see below.) I originally ordered two RasPis, one from each distributor, because I wanted to use them for my own projects. But as I saw there was a demand created by those who want a RasPi even more than I do, I'm willing to wait until September for the next batch and supplement my income a tad by reselling this one with a bunch of accessories.

Learn more about the Raspberry Pi at the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

▶▶▶ Buy with escrow at Bitmit (my USA ID is on file with them--edited to add)

Update 2012-06-08: Didn't sell in 72 hours, so I've relisted on eBay.  It's listed auction-style starting at 89.99 USD, with a Buy It Now option, and with free shipping.  I will accept Bitcoin for payment on this auction and am giving a 5% discount for doing so, so it could go for as low as 85.49 USD.  I'm open to escrow if you can recommend a reputable person or firm.

You didn't name a price...

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

That's right.  The premium is for the accessories to get you up and going quickly, and for knowing you'll get it within a week, not just sometime this year.  (Actually RS components shipped to me in about 2-3 weeks, but I'd been on their waiting list since March 3.  That was a little bit after preordering from element14, and I've still never heard back after ordering from them.)

Still tho...35 for the pi and 25 for the extras? That's a 100% premium you got going on.

Don't forget shipping, my total came to $43.02 and a lot of waiting.  It is still a big premium, but this is about the price the market has set for these (counting the accessories).  Take a look on eBay; you'll be lucky to nab one for less than $100.

I know, usually people give a bit of a discount when selling for Bitcoin.  If the Bitmit listing doesn't sell by the time it ends tomorrow, I'm relisting it on eBay in auction-style starting at 89.99 USD, and giving a 5% discount for paying with Bitcoin there.

I must be missing something... isn't the whole part of the raspberry pi being awesome the fact that it is dirt cheap?    Why would anyone pay a premium for such slow and crappy hardware?  Yea it's neat.. but only because it is cheap.

They want to get their hands on one to start working with it. It's like paying to get a sandybridge with AVX insructions when your core 2 does your daily tasks well enough.

Its low power consumption, lack of noise, tiny size, and GPIO capabilities also set it apart from desktop PCs.
