Re: Class 10 SD cards on the production boards

Re: Adata Class 10 8GB (AUSDH8GCL10-R) card

The class is not always a good thing to look.

Its beter see the real writ/read speed.

Already see class 4/6 cards faster than class 10

Hope the first people to get the rPi can test some cards, so we get a clue what its compatible.

Re: Which Power Supply?

I got one Nokia charger at home, 5v 900mA, and since it needs 700mA, will do just fine.

But there are good options, like this one: 5V,1.2A whit a usb/micro usb cable.

Or the Nokia AC-10E charger
