Re: Raspberry Pi with 512mb RAM in the Wild and Element14...

Interesting....

Farnell Switzerland increased the price again for the 512MB board this morning for business customers...for residential customers it stays the same as before...

Other countries experience the same?

Re: Raspberry Pi with 512mb RAM in the Wild and Element14...

I'm not sure what happened at Farnells Swedish price (SEK) when they added the new one but it raised with 12EURO (from 250SEK to 354SEK) when you buy as a company ex VAT... So now it is cheaper to order as consumer with VAT included... I contacted them and its just an error and will correct it. Jus...

Re: Raspberry Pi with 512mb RAM in the Wild and Element14...

You can read the amount of RAM off the memory chip. Davorin: this is almost certainly another wrinkle in Farnell's giant sales database. Please draw their attention to it; the price is meant to stay the same, and I'm sure they'll fix it once they know about it. Hi Liz Already made them aware by pho...
