This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The Raspberry Pi Zero W takes the beloved and extremely



popular Pi Zero and adds wireless LAN and Bluetooth, making it perfect for embedded Internet of Things projects.



The Raspberry Pi Zero WH is identical to the Pi Zero W, but comes with a pre-soldered male header direct from the manufacturer.



The Zero W is a super-small, hackable, and ultra-low-cost computer, with mini-HDMI, micro-B OTG USB, and the same 40-pin GPIO as its bigger brothers. Take it to the next level with our range of pHAT and HAT add-ons!



With mini-HDMI, micro-B OTG USB, and the same 40-pin GPIO it still has great connectivity although you'll probably want our adaptor kit to help you hook it up to your existing devices..



Our Pibow Zero W case (available separately) will safely ensconce your Pi Zero W and protect it from bumps and bruises.



Our project kits for Pi Zero W will give you everything you need to build one of three beautiful projects - a Pirate Radio, a Mood Light, or a Scroll Bot - and will add a touch of panache to your desk.



Or why not try our Pi Zero W Starter Kit that includes one of our Blinkt! multicolour LED strips, the perfect way to take your first steps with coding in Python!

Notes
Please be aware that your Pi Zero W WILL NOT BOOT without an SD card with a fresh image installed. SD cards that work in your Pi 2/3 or Pi Zero (non-W) are not guaranteed to work in your new



Zero W!

Depends on how much traffic you're expecting. Something like lighttpd on a minimal linux OS would probably run comfortably.

Would this be powerful to run something that would stream via Spotify and internet radio stations connected to an audio system via audio out? I am assuming an audio board would be needed to provide the line-out?
This guy is currently doing a video set on this exact topic.

MISPERRY

Hope it helps

Not really. A raspberry pi 3/4 would depending on what you're doing.

These are good for small projects or pi holes.

If I was going to set a pi camera up I'm guessing I wouldn't need a Pi Zero ?

It should be perfect for that. Low power.


This should show you how it is. Benefits and issues.

Obviously the pi has a few cameras so it would depend on what you use it for and the camera.

Was thinking of setting up a camera so use it as a security camera, maybe set it up just so it detects movement.

Then this should be great. The video I linked does exactly that.

What's great about these is they're updated and always adding features. Unlike the others that tend to be outdated quickly and rarely get updates.

Hope all goes well for you
Can I anyone guide me to a source that has projects easy for someone with no programming background yet be fun and engaging?
Erm.. How is this a deal exactly? This is the standard price...

What is it you would like to do ?

You can set up a camera (like I mentioned earlier)
You can make a Freeview box / a way to receive DVB T2 streams to view on a monitor or over a network
Or a cheap computer

I haven't done anything fun or engaging, Ive put Kodi onto 1 I have, Ill be setting up a camera onto a Pimoroni and considering the DVB option.

Raspberry pi foundation could be a start, loads of videos online or websites with instructions.
