US Stock at Newark

Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:49 pm

After waiting for weeks and weeks to hear from Allied, I ordered a Pi from Newark after seeing that they had a limited supply. I had hoped that maybe it would be here in a couple weeks.

I ordered yesterday morning and was amazed that it was delivered to my house this afternoon. It doesn't hurt that their warehouse is only a few hours away.

If they still have some in stock, go for them!

P.S. - It's the 512 Model B

I ordered one this afternoon from them and it is shipping tomorrow.

When I ordered it, it said qty available 0, but it has always said that when I have ordered them.

I ordered one from them several weeks ago and after est. ship date flopping(went from 1w after order date to end Dec. and a bunch of dates in between) around it finally shipped 11/27 and arrived yesterday.

model b/512M made in China

they're still using the cheapo bubblevelope things, but at least this time it wasn't badly crushed.

I kept typing in their URL and was getting a site down error all day. I decided to hit refresh and it pulled up. Must have been down shortly, and I was just pulling from cache ever since then.

As an aside, they have the most adorable dog for their error page. I saved a copy of it to use as a wallpaper on my desktop.
