To Everyone who threatned me early on in the project

You'll know who you are, what you said, and the lengths you went to to threaten me. I had set out to create a book sized Raspberry Pi computer with 5 port ethernet, injectable wifi, a 12v DC rechargable battery system, multiple USB, and access to the GPIO ports. I had set the price at $400(with hope...

Re: Commercially available RPI cases? Are there any yet?

Amen to the costs involved. With any new tech, first offerings will be expensive until people recoup their RD and prototyping...soon enough prices will drop.

Re: EBay sale Guy trying to sell Pi for 500 bucks.

I have been able to find different vendors for items, and lowered my profit to a point at which I'll make minimum wage for my work.

I still don't get why you have such hate. I just want to be paid for my work.

Re: EBay sale Guy trying to sell Pi for 500 bucks.

As a goodwill gesture I've appended the listing. I have now added this at the bottom :

Just to let everyone know I'll be donating 5% of my profits(no I won't tell you what they are) to the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

turnkey is a term that means you don't have to assemble anything yourself. When it arrives you just turn it on(linux skills not included lol).

Re: EBay sale Guy trying to sell Pi for 500 bucks.

I'm not going to list all the parts and their cost, or where I'm getting them, or approximate what my time is worth for the work....I will summarize them as a general whole and say my costs range over $400.
