Re: Manufacturer Backlash

Cheers Liz, my understanding was one RasPi bought would put another in the hands of a kid in school, but I don't count that as profit.  If i see you zooming around in a Ferrari though, i will class that as a profit made some place!

Re: Manufacturer Backlash

I TOTALLY understand that, but when the RasPi shows how cheaply something can be made, it begs the question of how much is a high end gaming PC REALLY worth? 200 quid for all component parts and manufacturing? 300? 400? Certainly not a 1000!

Re: Manufacturer Backlash

A £1000 Gamer PC is probably massively overpriced though.  The RasPi could highlight that fact.  I understand companies need to make a profit but we get fleeced left, right and Chelsea!

Re: Manufacturer Backlash

<t>What can they legitimately do though?  If they want to compete, they need to reduce their prices accordingly.  We live in a rip off society, maybe the RasPi could redress the balance.  Our value for money is pretty much assured in this project, although as it isn't being sold for profit one could...

I cannot help at all with anything technical, but as a noob and dullard I am more than happy to do.any testing and instruction following with feedback to prove the instructions written can be easily followed by other noobs/dullards!
