So I would appreciate any tips on where to buy? what to buy? and how much I should look to pay?
I apologise if this has been answered many times but I searched the forums and couldnt find a relevant thread.
There is all the probability that you have everything you need at home already - a usb keyboard, a usb mouse, a tv or monitor with hdmi or RCA input, a micro SD card 4gb+.
You may or may not have a suitable psu and usb cable to power the pi.
