Go easy on me, this is my first deal on here. The raspberry pi zero is a nightmare to get hold of and they are selling for silly money on auction sites. The Pi zero was given away free with MagPi

From playing around with my Pi Zero, I found its possible to play SD video in MP4 format fullscreen providing you use the omxplayer app that utilises the built-in GPU core. VLC will play mp3 but wont play mp4s as in VLC everything is done in software (not GPU).
As a basic media playback device the Pi Zero would probably be fine. Haven't tried streaming yet.
The limited RAM can be a pain if you are doing internet stuff, so if you plan to use it as a general purpose machine I would go with the Raspberry Pi B2 as the increased RAM and Quad cores handle the web better. Sadly the lack of flash support prevents a lot of the media-rich sites like iplayer this affects all variants because there us no ARM support for Flash.

I believe video on Kodi is smooth enough - have a look at the YouTube videos showing the Pi Zero playing back HD videos stutter-free:

The rarity and hype of this issue makes me want to go out and buy it even though I don't need it. I've got one of the other versions and if I get this one it'll probably gather dust too.

i really don't need one either, but for me, i think it's more the novelty of getting a free computer on a magazine more than the hype.

although the hype is probably playing a significant role, to be fair :)

well in the course of doing what i had to do today, i went in to two asdas, a wh-smiths, a tesco and a morrisons and didn't see a sign of any of them anywhere so i really am out now. i'll probably wait until the 10th to see if this second print run actually happens, otherwise i'll leave it.
I just got last copy in tesco welling

unless im misreading this, the software comes preloaded onto the Pi, so yes you do need to buy one
You can also download an updated Raspbian image for an existing Pi. Not sure if the included version of Mathematica is somehow locked to runly only on a Raspberry Pi.

If it is then you need a Pi so the price of this deal is either £0 if you already have one or £26.40 if you need to buy one.


If it isn't then you don't even need a Pi and the deal price is £0.

But we are rapidly disappearing up our own bumholes here over a semantic quibble. The spirit of this deal is to tell people about Mathematica being free for RasPis.

Voted hot.

That's exactly what the deal should have read: 'Mathematica' is 'free for RasPis' with a price of zero!
and 'get deal' should point at

jasee
The title is misleading, the software is free! That's what the post is about, why is there a price?
That's the price of a pi. And the link is wrong, why is it the link to buying a pi?
Surely you don't need to buy a pi from rs in order to get the software?

You don't need to purchase a new Pi any existing users with at least 600MB of free space on their SD card can install Mathmatica today by typing:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine

You’ll find Mathematica in the app launcher under the Education menu.
Thanks OP, title could do with a tidy up, anyway this is hot. I didn't know about this, it's useless to me judging by the content, however I can mention it to others :)

How is this a deal?

This is the normal price, and as others have noted, since we have no software patents in the UK, why should it exist anyway?
This, absolutely this. 100% Cold.

no software patents in the UK ? of course we do and unlike china we respect world patents as well as those solely covering the UK.

in fact it might interest you to know that everytime someone buys an android phone in the UK (that is one not from a crappy chinese brand) Microsoft earns more from patent/licence wise it than the licence fee it gets on a Windows phone ...

... or in fact even the chinese SOC makers have to pay good old UK based ARM a patent royalty/licence of every little ARM chip they make for every phone, tablet, settop box, TV etc no matter how good or crappy
Don't read into things, it's not a deal. Paying the price someone asks you to pay for something is not a deal. If they were selling these for 1p because it's Christmas that would be a deal.

And if someone from the Raspberry Pi foundation is reading that, I think it would be a tremendous idea. :D I had to vote this deal cold because it isn't actually a deal.

wow I didn't realise the pi was this broken by design. This situation is begging to be exploited by selling fake unlockers and licenses on ebay.
anyone care to go into business with me?

It is not broken by design.. it just doesnt include a codec that is not needed by many who buy it.
DTS decoding is more important to most, also restricted by licence I believe.
No I played DTS no problem in a mkv

Edited By: Cro_Baron on Sep 02, 2012 10:31
If they had added it people would moan about paying for a feature they never use. If its too expensive or you won't use it, don't buy it.
Really bad, copyrighting nonsense is so annoying

DVD is a dead format anyway
zaphod
In this case, to keep costs down, the Raspberry Pi foundation included MPEG4 hardware decoding for free (because I believe this doesn't require a license oddly enough) and left MPEG2 out because this does require a license which would have bumped the cost of the Pi up.

It was to keep costs down yes as an mpeg2 license costs $2 per unit, almost 10% of the Pi's price point which is why the foundation decided to not include it by default. mpeg4 / h264 does need licensing and I believe it cost about $0.20 per device for h264 which is why that is included.

Some guys were making good progress with decoding SD mpeg2 on the Pi natively at good frame rates before this was released. I guess that effort will probably stop now.

waste of time, not a deal. cold!

RasPi arrived last week - setup raspbmc and is running nicely with android controller. With delivery it was £29

Edited By: dsided on Jul 28, 2012 08:40
As a media player it's playing all I throw at raspbmc... however it will be useless as it stands as a media player unless you have a decent av amp to decode your hd audio because the pi won't do at present. This kind of kills it's use as a media player.
I modified my Atari 520 ST to have twin floppy drives. A pair of slimline drives could just about fit into the same space. I also soldered a blitter chip into it (with no noticeable difference in performance!).
