well the new Rasberry Pi PC computer has finally gone on sale to the world.You can buy the Rasberry Pi "model b" computers from today!
Interestingly the "model A" computer has recieved an unusual free upgrade to 256 megs of RAM.
This makes the $25 model A
computer a better buy now. You can get new 99 cent USB "ethernet" internet adapaters and new 50 cent USB 4 hubs on ebay. This leaves you with the power of a model B machine for just the price of a model Ahttp://www.raspberrypi.org/
All the computers are being sold by 2 proper distributers now. It's 2 global distributors and the computers will be sold in their stores and their catalogues globally. The computers will also
be manufactured by these 2 companies so "volume" manufacture won't be limited to 10 thousand
units. They will be able to manufacture say 100 thousand computers or as demand requires.
Through the distributor you will also be able to place BULK orders for Rasberry Pi machines to the
same name and address. This is handy for schools and other buyers. (or even re-sellers if such a thing exists)
