I personally recommend buying from Newark element14. I ordered about 12 hours after launch but got a ship date of 7/5 (not bad - 9 days). They have stock shipping out in batches of 1500 every week, and because of their lesser brand recognition in comparison to PiHut/Pimoroni/Adafruit, there are higher odds they'll have some inventory available more quickly for you. Patience required, but better than waiting indefinitely.energyi wrote: If you are like me, you might not have gotten access to the higher GB Ram models because they were sold out.
Disabled by default, generally not recommended. I mean, you could try it, but it will generally offer little performance boost and will wear out your SD card much quicker. 1GB of RAM shouldn't be too bad, because after all, Raspbian Buster is designed to still run on the 1st-revision Model B Pis, which had 256MB of RAM (except for some super early 128MB models).energyi wrote:Swap disk?
Perhaps, but you can only buy a Model A+ with 512MB of RAM right now. Maybe a future Model A if RAM isn't too expensive.wren wrote:The 1GB model should be reserved for Raspberry Pi A only.
I read somewhere (sorry, again, if someone DMs me with where it is from I will happily add it), the factories can make about 1000 RPi4s per hour. Not a joke. I wouldn't expect rarity to last too long.wren wrote: I think the 2GB and 4GB models will be hard to find in the first few months.
This is going back to the Pi3B launch... Production was 20K per day, for a while. The maximum *sustainable* rate was 15K/day. Those rates are for the Sony Pencoed factory. There are other factories elsewere, such as China and--specifically for the "local" markets--Japan and Brazil. The pre-launch supply was (IIRC) 150K boards. They sold 50K the first day and the entire 150K supply during the first week.
