I ordered mine from them the day before that and it's not been shipped! Is this a wind up?

I don't mind, I'm in no rush.

Do you mean the sticker numbers, or "grep Serial /proc/cpuinfo"?

I ordered two on July 17th, over 24 hours after the relaxation of restrictions. Arrived today so I too am well impressed with Farnell.

which means one of to things, either the backlog has pretty much been cleared or farnell aren't shipping orders in order.

I hope it's the former but based on past reports I fear it may be the latter.

Pretty sure it's the latter if these reports are true, seeing as I ordered before some people here and didn't get it yet.

As I say, it said 5 weeks so I'm in no rush - just a little confused about what's happening...

Hi,

I was wondering what country you are in? I ordered one from Farnell on the 20th, ORP059xxx and haven't heard anything. (Originally ordered one from RS, but Farnell has a much shorter (listed) wait time).

thanks,
James

I'm from Spain, and frist order one whith Rs 4th july but as I read in the forum that Farrell was delivering in two days I ordered other with RS. At least I have an email saying that I have sent, I hope that in 5 days I have it in my hands.

Forgive my English. I woke up recently and I used google translator. :oops:

I placed my order on 18/7 and have had shipping notification today. I'm impressed as I'm sure the website said to allow around 5 weeks for delivery!

Why is R-Pi more expensive at Farnell than RS-Components?

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.

Cheers

Paul

My Pi from Farnell delivered just over a week ago was £29.46 including VAT and delivery as was my original one delivered much earlier - so I have no idea where that quoted price of £38.65 came from
