but isn't it sold out?

edit - yes it is. I checked this morning well before this deal was posted. OP unless you have an alternative supplier I'm missing, you should have checked this yourself.

You're right - OOS at deal link, but can be found at plenty of stores. I edited the original post.
Picked up magazine in whsmiths this morning Norwich
The pi site claims this only went on sale today, so maybe only going live this morning.
Fun gadget, unheard of to get a computer free with a magazine. Not particularly useful without extra cables though.
Website down for me. I'll check out WH Smiths today
Just checked my local smiths...nothing there unfortunately. I guess its a case of lucking out in retail, and F5ing the website!
I managed to get one first thing in WHSmiths in Seaford this morning. Stood over the poor girl while she unpacked the new mags to go on the shelves, bless her she was very patient!
I went to my local smiths and there was nothing in there unfortunately.

Got it this morning from my local WHSmith.
Thanks OP. Got mine in WH Smiths
Just got mine in Tesco - thanks for the tip off!
Thanks for the post - got one from WHS - It's good to get the magazine too, if you're going to give it as an xmas gift to a child - gives them a few ideas on the uses for it.
I just tried Tesco and Sainsbury's in Kensington. No joy unfortunately. Not sure if it sold out or they never stocked it in the first place.
Crazy good deal!
its a gooooose chase.

buy the pi zero from the pihut for £6.50 delivered.

you will be lucky to get that magpi magazine anywhere between the regular readers and people who have read you get the pi with it
The first 30 issues of the magazine are also free digitally if folk need ideas on what to do with it!

Picked up last 2 on shelf at Tesco Pool, lady was stocking shelf and mentioned that lots of people had been buying these all day and picking up a couple of copies each, she couldn't understand why it was so popular and all had gone within a day She didn't say if they had any more copies to restock. Then made a quick visit to Poundland where they have micro HDMI to Full size HDMI cables for you've guessed it, £1... Worth a look if you're passing and need a cable for yours

agreed. was also told that there should be new batches coming in first thing in WHShith branches
the initial run was for 10,000 magazines according to a site i read, so i would expect that to be gone very quickly. but if there are new batches due in.

I don't think i'm as technically minded any more to get something like this and make something decent, but at the price, it's a no brainer really - has to be worth a punt if i can get one.
Got one in Scunthorpe Tesco this afternoon and they had about 10 left.
None in Huntingdon extra (18 minutes on the phone....) (tesco you suck)

Same as you mate. I got the old pi and got bored of it. It's just high level languages. But can be fun for kids if they take an interest.

I used to work in I.T. and program in a lot of the stuff that works on the PI, so in that respect, I suppose I could pick it up again if i put my mind to it, but at this point in my life I don't think i've got the patience any more to sit at it for hours on end and try to get it to work

anyway, you can get the magazine on ebay .. for £20 quid ...

Same at Manchester Airport (T1 or Central)
Pick one up at WHSmith clapham junction, they had a few. This isn't expired, it will probably gather dust next to my other RPi, regardless it is very near.

lol - I did consider emptying the shelves in tesco and selling them on ebay but just bought the one copy
Bought one from sainsburys this morning quite a few left.
Just been Looking at them on eBay £21 -2 bids and one has been put on an hour ago and has gone up to £6.50 already
I tried 4 places and nothing. I don't need one, but I would like a retropie box.
how does it connect to network?
who expired this? I'm sure some shops might still have it, somebody else has reposted.
As you'll need to buy all the converters (unless you already have a load of micro USB/HDMI/SD connectors and GPIO headers!) you would be better off buying this AND the extension kit at the same time. I expect EBay will be selling these together for a good price.
