Re: Complaining about eBay scalpers..

Problem is, people see the ebay listing and get all offended.

I'm inclining to the point where any "ebay scalper" thread will get deleted without warning or consideration for the feelings of ANYONE!

Re: What happened to the Model A?

<t>Because of the nature of the demand for the RasPi, I believe the Foundation took the view that very few would want the Model A and so took the decision to make the first batch all Model B.   Its probable that Farnell and RS will continue to only make Model Bs until the backlog is removed, then ma...
