I tried to get a Pi when it launched but I failed, primarily because of my location.
I know I "can" buy with farnell, but they won't accept credit card, and I don't want to open a trade account just for the Pi. RS Philippines didn't have it when I checked, they are now registering interest now though.
Also both sites are selling it for 2k PHP w/o shipping and tax, that is 46 USD. With VAT plus shipping + postage tax, it would be quite pricier than I have expected. I know it won't be a problem for most of you. I can easily see lots of hate posts here to those that are unhappy about the price but please understand that a student from a third world country actually has to skip more meals for that price increase.
Where do you suggest I buy the Pi?
I actually skipped some meals to save
