Re: "Made in China" Raspberry Pi

Yesterday i made an order from RS. But when i got the truth that all RS Rasp Pis are not "made in the U.K. " , i cancelled the order.

Re: New board?

Please Google "The Osbourne Effect" and get back to us, OK? Since I'm old enough to remember when that happened.... It is worth keeping in mind that there are a few differences. Primarily, the Osbourne machines were relatively expensive while the Pi is cheap. One didn't order bunches of Osbournes, ...
