Just bought a case on ebay called the Pi Crust, seller id is Pi_crust for £7.99. It is 7 pieces of laser cut plastic that comes flat packed like furniture. It goes together in seconds, the top is clear so you can see the R-Pi. Ordered it 2 days ago and it arrived in double quick time. PArt of the sale price goes to the Raspberry Pi Foundation too.

Check it out here - http://facebook.com/rPiCrust

I am really pleased with mine, all the holes are cut precisely in the right place and it looks cool too.

I bought a Pi Crust, and I'm very happy with it. Looks good, protects the computer against dozy owners who put things down on top of it. Doh!

Also, it's solid and sturdy, and helps anchor the RasPi against the drag of assorted cables.

He's put the price up to £19.99 now - which in my opinion is far too expensive. I really wanted one too, but I begrudge paying nearly as much as the Pi intself

It's at 9 GBP from etsy, from their Facebook page. emphasis added:
AS A NEW EBAY SELLER, WE ARE LIMITED AS TO HOW MANY ITEMS WE CAN SELL IN A MONTH. WE HAVE NOW REACHED THAT LIMIT AND ARE BLOWN AWAY BY YOUR SUPPORT - THANK YOU!!!!

WE HAVE HAD TO LIST OUR RED PI CRUST ITEM AT A SILLY PRICE TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T SELL SO WE CAN KEEP THE LISTING ACTIVE.

PRICES WILL RETURN TO NORMAL ON SUNDAY 1st JULY 2012 WHEN OUR SELLER ALLOWANCES ARE RESET!

IN THE MEANTIME, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM ON EBAY!
(BET YOU'VE NEVER READ THAT BEFORE ABOUT AN EBAY LISTING!)

PI CRUSTS ARE AVAILABLE ON OUR ETSY STORE FOR 1p LESS THAN THEY WILL BE LISTED ON EBAY

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING... :)

Hi PiCrust,

Does your case allow access to the GPIO pins?

Cheers

This is a beautiful and well constructed case, I have one myself, but it doesn't
allow access to the GPIO pins. You would have to cut a slot in the top for the
ribbon cable.
