Farnell set the price at 38.65 pounds while RS-Components at 25.92 pounds.
Hi

Does that price include VAT and delivery? RS all included is £30.86 delivered within the UK.

That might explain how Farnell can ship so quickly as all the orders have gone to RS as they are cheaper.

Sorry, the price from RS was 21.60 pounds (27.40 euro) without VAT because I'm in Serbia.
The delivery wasn't included in the price and it's 4.95 pounds (6.28 euro).
So the combined price was 26,55 pounds.
Farnell quoted 38.65 pounds inclusive of delivery.
38.65-4.95=33,7 pounds for the R-Pi board.
And the VAT is also excluded from the Farnel price.
So, 21.60 (RS) compared to 33,7 (Farnell) pounds.

Oder arrived yesterday, 2 days after shipping and 9 days after order was placed, including week end ! Very impressed as I was under the impression I would have to wait weeks on end :)

Order number was ORP057XXX if it's of any help to any one. Order was placed on the 16th.

I'm pretty sure it does include UK delivery, I don't think it includes delivery anywhere else.
RS all included is £30.86 delivered within the UK.
Afaict for one Pi in the UK RS works out slightly more expensive.

However RS's delivery charge is per order, so if you are ordering a bulk lot of Pis RS is considerablly cheaper. I also think RS delivery charge for Pis is the same regardless of destination (though for some destinations DHL are slapping on extra fees :( )
That might explain how Farnell can ship so quickly as all the orders have gone to RS as they are cheaper.
That is the impression I get too.
