The best price I can find for the model B Raspberry PI (512mb), especially given the free next day delivery. I think you may be able to use the discount code GUEST01, but only found that after I'd placed the order!

Should have said from RS - can some one edit the title to include? Thanks
#2
What does the discount code do? The price is still £26.
#3
I'm not 100% sure, it came up after I ordered, so didn't include it in the deal price. I think you need to register first and then use it?
#4
Isn't this the price EXCLUDING VAT?
#5
There's no vat on Pi. I think possibly because it's classes as an educational device? My confirmation email shows no vat and no charge for p&p.

This is for the business side of the website.
If you look at the personal use side of the store it says £31.20 (£26 exc vat)

Still a good price if they deliver it.

Well I bought one a few days ago when I was charged VAT. If you navigate from home page it asks if its for personal or business use. I clicked personal and its showed VAT. I bought the model B and SD card bundle which is now oos but I had to pay VAT on it. Came to £32.88 including £5.80 or so vat. Not happy :-(

GUEST01 does nothing. Went all the way to confirmation and still was showing as £26 despite saying I have used a promotional code.
Didn't buy in the end as I am not sure.

Surely the point of the Pi is the price. Surely these 'even better' options are just higher cost, at which point you might as well just buy one of these if you want more performance. http://www.hardkernel.com/main/main.php

beaglebone is the same price pretty much and even comes with its own OS preloaded (angstrom)

Beaglebone Black. A proper single board computer. Raspberry Pi's are for children.

The beagle board is 300 Mhz quicker on the CPU but has a weaker GPU - so no, the Pi is better as a media center plus, you can easily overclock the Pi to run at 1Ghz

its double the price.

Watch out for hidden charges from this company - they charged me for postage on my last (and first) order with them, even though it said it was free on the invoice.

Gave up arguing with them, awful customer service.

The pi is great though!

Is there any reason to get one of those rather than a CuBox if you don't own any Pi accessories etc?

this isnt the 'media center Pi' thread.

the fact the GPU boots the OS of the Pi says an awful lot. it's just not designed to be a proper computer. The beaglebone has a Cortex found in most phones and tablets, and runs more stable than the Pi.

used as a desktop equivalent the beaglebone blows away the pi.

and lets not forget these computers can be used to perform more things beyond simple media consumption.

http://makezine.com/magazine/how-to-choose-the-right-platform-raspberry-pi-or-beaglebone-black/

thanks nice bit of info there.

Specifically, even when running at the same clock speed, the processor on the BeagleBone Black is nearly TWICE AS FAST as the processor on the Raspberry Pi. (Source 1: ARM A8 runs 2000 MIPS/MHz, Source 2: ARM11 runs 1250 MIPS/MHz)

Winner: BeagleBone Black


and look at the addons!

sorry if I'm a bit nooby but what is Rasberry Pi actually capable of in terms of power?

It's an introduction into the world of computer programming, can run a version of Linux, can play HD video and be used with lots of add-on boards to interact with other things.

It's on par with a basic smart phone in terms of power from basic knowledge.

It doesn't matter about speed xbmc is officially supported by the pi and is written for i. the beagle board isn't unless that's changed recently so if it's for xbmc pi all the way with a little over clocking and is spot on

This is a thread for people wanting to buy a Raspberry Pi. The Beaglebone is over twice the price. There are so many problems with your comment it is difficult to take it seriously.

Thanks for the additional comments and info, was considering getting one, but might look at the other options instead.

nowhere does OP mention xbmc. there is another thread for that here.

Thankfully there are saddos who have an interest in things like the Raspberry Pi and if it engages kids in getting under the covers of computing rather than the plug and play of modern smartphones, windows, consoles then it's a good thing. If there weren't saddos as you call in the first place we wouldn't have the kind of tech we have today.

It was when it came out. You'd be hard pushed to find a smartphone as slow as a Pi these days.
