Was looking to buy RP2 and this the cheapest I could find

please note free shipping only apply with +$45 orders
so if you want to buy both you need something around $2 (I ordered some cable ties, not sure what I am going to do with it)

if you are willing to use it as media centre for your tv may be its a good idea to buy this Keyboard
if you need wifi dongle

          It's either hype or people just plus any deal they are interested in looking up later because it's in their list of voted for deals. I think people just vote for stuff they like most of the time

    Crap, I ordered it 5 minutes ago at full price and now I just saw this :-(
    Great deal for everybody else though.

    Note that RasPi supports CEC. In other words if your TV supports CEC you can control the RasPi with the TV remote. No need for external keyboards.

      call them and cancel order.

        It was too late. I ordered shortly before the closing time for the next-day delivery and within 15min the order was processed and shipped.

    Got one from these guys in Feb paid $38.00 Pi2 and $10 case back then.
    For anyone ordering do not forget your Power Supply Unit I got this :
    PSU-RASPBERRY-PI-2A-5V PSU, RASPBERRY PI, 5V, 2A, MICRO USB - back then it was $7.91

  • +2 votes

    Seamonkey is very right about the power supply. Pi 2 wont run full speed without close to 2A of current. It will run, but you get an annoying little coloured icon wheel in the corner and some usb devices will turn off. Awesome device dont' get me wrong, but the original would run off the USB port on the TV, this one won't. Most mobile phone chargers are only 1A, so won't work either.

    •  

      If you have a samsung or htc recent Phone those chargers are 2.1A. Dont pay $14 for one. Or jaycar may have a cheap one.

      •  

        I think most tablets are 5W at only 1A. My 5.5" phone charger is only 0.7A

        •  

          Just checked, I have 4 different usb chargers all 2.0A

      I've got 4 RPI2 running off 4 different LED HDTV's USB Port deployed on clients waiting rooms. 2 x 50" Panasonic, a 50" Samsung and an 50" LG. All RPI2 have an EDIMAX EW-7612UAn wifi dongle. None of them suffer from lack of power. I love the fact that the RPI2 turns off when the TV is switched off also.

      With a 2.0a power supply however, I was able to run a Usb Wifi Dongle, a usb Avermedia Hdtv and a usb Lirc IRC receiver on the RPI2.

    This PSU comes in under $8 with above codes http://au.element14.com/stontronics/t5454dv/psu-raspberry-pi...

    •  

      Depends on your Pi's purpose. It doesn't look like that case has easy access to the GPIO pins?

    •  

      I think thats for the original v1 raspberry pi B+, or are the cases the same for rPI v2?

      •  

        I have this case (MULTICOMP MC-RP002-CLR), it fits v2 Pi perfectly.

    now i recon this is a much better deal that the google chromecast i paid $45 for, I was hyped since it was getting so many upvotes i thoguht it might be a really good device. this is the same price but its like a mini computer..

    price now showing $43.00 for the Raspberry Pi 2

    I want one of those Hakko FX-888D soldering irons but this place is still pretty expensive even with the 10% discount. $179 is the cheapest I have seen it in Australia. :(
    My mate in AMerica buys it for $100 AUD

        Never buy the ones from Hong Kong and Japan. The circuitry inside them is lazy and cheap.

      $164 AUD at Mektronics:
      http://www.mektronics.com.au/hakko-fx888d-digital-soldering-...

      Free delivery for orders over $150 or you can pick it up from their warehouse in Seven Hills if you live in the Sydney are. That's the cheapest I've seen it from a local seller. I found one for $125 on eBay but of course, local sellers are much better if you don't mind the extra $40.

      •  

        $164 ex GST = $180.40

      •  

        That's excluding GST and the eBay ones sell the cheap imitation ones from China. They are very poorly built and nothing compared to the original ones.

    Add this IR and use LIRC

    Cost will reach a total $45.09 + GST for RP 2 + Case + IR Receiver => Free delivery

    This price looks good.

    Note, while you could get Rasberry Pie for $2, but it has been sold out…

    •  

      hmmmmmm. haters gonna hate.

    •  

      Yep, make sure you have decent power at the cable end, 2A is a good idea if you intend on connecting multiple usb devices. The usb micro plug packs should be rated 2A at the cable end, whereas a usb 2A plug pack and separate usb to micro cable depends on the cables rating

    How the op got no GST on the final price?

      Yeahhh I would like to know too. Maybe something to do with the trade account?

    Can you run a small web hosting business off one of these?

    •  

      It is possible, as for speed, who knows!

      •  

        check out the micron21 web site..they have raspberry pi racks for hosting small web servers etc.

  •  

    The pi, the tf card, the mouse, look at those posts that all come together!! I am talking about the 30$64g samsung tf card and the compact keyboard bargain. Pity I just bought mine half month ago for like 80$ from stainsmart. Damn..

    •  

      "Pity I just bought mine half month ago"

      What you only have 1?

      Might be time for another :)

  •  

    Nice post. I bought a pi and 2 cases, 1 to house the last pi I bought but haven't used.
    Maybe I can power them both with eneloops….

  •  

    Do you need a microSD card for this, or can you run it of one (or multiple) USB memory sticks?

    Wow what a good service, I got mine this morning

        I had an A1200 tower with PPC Accellerator, Graphics card etc etc. Still the best OS ever built.

        Ever heard of SEAL (South Essex Amiga Link)… we had a mag called Clubbed (Clubbed SEAL, geddit?!) :)

  •  

    thanks OP, just brainwashed the other 2 of my colleagues as well..

  •  

    Just FYI, the Pi and PSU are local stock and you'll probably get them next working day if you order before 6PM AEST but the official case is UK stock and will take a few extra days to rock up.

    •  

      Yea that being said I ordered one last week with a pi2 and it arrived next day

  •  

    Any other recommendations for a cheap WiFi dongle? The one linked by OP does not say which chipset it has. I got one on ebay for $3.79 with the RTL8188CUS chipset (supposedly) after reading that the RTL8188EUS chipset is not yet supported by Raspbian out of the box although it can be made to work by mucking about with new firmware.

    •  

      The edimax one i have is very good… I have it for my gen1 Pi. I'll have a look at what the model is and update my post when I get home in like 20 mins.

      I got it for $14 shipped from The UK.

      However if anyone knows of a cheap ac compatible dongle that'd be good

      Edit: this one http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/EDIMAX-7811Un-USB-Nano-Upto-150M-...

    •  

      EDIMAX EW-7612UAn (this one is a 300Mbps with a 3dbi antenna). Signal is more consistently better than the micro dongles mentioned here including the asus n10).

    •  

      They're both good units. Still keen to hear recommendations for the cheap nano adaptors in the $3 range. Forest Gump can tell you what it's like when you buy generics on ebay ;-)

    Just tried to place an order but it would only accept the first voucher. When I try to apply 10WINNERAU I get the message:

    Has it expired or this an error?

      For the sake of saving approx $5 I wouldn't hesitate. Especially when they use a priority overnight courier.
