Unless I'm missing something, this is a price that is missing VAT. As soon as you go to the consumer site the price is back up to £47.99.

This doesn't look like a deal. Certainly not a hot deal.

Unfortunately that's without Vat, so £47.99 with Vat

Thanks, just started looking for one of these. Almost bought a preloaded one(emulator and roms) from eBay earlier.
Think I’ll just buy this and do it myself.

Dead easy to do. Just download RetroPi.
I’d add the cpu and memory heat sinks though - she gets hot when she’s excited.

Haha, if you think that's painful then try creating your own Hyperspin image across multiple formats including full romsets and videos. Maybe you're better off with a Pandora's box or something.
why is the 39.99 even listed now?
do i need to list an ex-vat price on all my deals now?
Besides emulators and roms which you can do via a PC without a Raspeberry anyway, what else do people use Rasperberry kits for? I take it there is multiple usage advantages and options?
I’m interested in setting up my own retro pi, but have heard about stability issues with the Pi 3 B+ And retropi...can anyone advise me on this?

Editor privilege....
Excuse my ignorance, but how does this compare with the Kano kit?

I've just shelled out on a Kano kit for my 6 year old...
