 :cool:

I would be interested. Provided they have the Raspberry Pi RPi-Kit-White Embedded System Kit, is available. I don't need the heatsinks, that I can make from old PC heatsinks.

Cool. Pity they not bringing in Pi Zero's. Now that I would buy a few of. I have 2 Pi's at the moment, an original Pi A and also a model B, both bought from RS. I want to roll down the model B as a development/prototype board, as I have bought some kickstarter kits from http://raspi.tv/.
Our exchange rate has killed us, as it is not worth importing goods from anywhere else in the world. But such is life. :facepalm:

Curious, what would you do with the pi?
