Recommendations for Buying a Raspberry Pi?

by daveoei on Mon Aug 20, 2012 5:50 pm

Hello!

The Friday posts are fun and informative, but trying to find a Pi to buy in the United States is worse (probably) than pulling teeth.

Do you have a source/distributor that we can check out who is selling these? I can't find them anywhere and it's not from a lack of doing Google searches.

Thanks in advance!

Best,

Dave

I got mine from Newark/E14, ordered 8/6 and had it 8/15. When I ordered they say backordered until 9/5 and then told me my ship date was 8/21.

YMMV,
