You will get the Raspberry Pi board, and....er....that's it. Oh, some basic instructions.

It's about the fifth question in the FAQs (press link at top of every page or you can go direct here http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs)

The grammar of the answer can easily be misread so I'll give you a summary (of my understanding) but encourage you to read the rest of the faqs.

1. A Raspberry Pi

2. A Quick Start How to Connect it Guide and statutory declarations etc.

Everything else you'll need to buy separately.

Or get from your junk drawer.  I don't plan to buy anything. 
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.

That is what I do.  Most electronics now do not include cables, unless they are proprietary to that device or manufacture.  99% of printers don't include the USB/Ethernet Cables.  TV's don't include video cables any more, to many choices and lengths to worry about, it is better for electronic companies to say get your own cable at whatever length you need.

@ Churchill The Dog

There will be no boxes until the production boards reach the purchasers, as there have been component changes since the original board.

read balazra post 17. It's a bit rough and ready but accurate.
