I was nearly tempted by that, I was waiting until today to pull the trigger. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Fleabay and Amazon have lots of bargain older models now! If anyone's wanting to do some hardware tinkering that doesn't need the upgraded Pi 2 spec or is looking for a bargain basement machine for experiments like home built Pi supercomputer or has a use that might melt, blow up or crack a board then the good discount is worth taking advantage of and save some cash to get a new Pi at what was a day ago a second hand price.

I'm in the same boat with a project based on the Model A/B that doesn't mate with the B+. I tried ordering 100 Model Bs from Newark/element14 back in November (at full $35 price) but they canceled the order and told me they weren't getting any more stock. I tried to buy all 83 they had and they said they didn't even have 83 and the next day they were out of stock. I'd love to find a supplier that had Model B parts even at normal retail price.

If these are still being manufactured, where are they going and how can I get them in quantity? The foundation says they'll keep being made as long as there is demand but if people who need them can't find them to buy they, how can the demand be judged?

I dunno what is going on with farnell/newark, despite assurances from the raspberry pi foundation they are listing the Pi as discontinued on the newark site and not listing it at all on the farnell site.

On the RS/allied side of the fence though things are looking brighter. RS in the UK claim they have stock available to ship now and allied claim they have stock available to ship in the UK (comparing stock figures I guess the "can ship in 10 days." means that allied will order the stock from RS in the UK and then ship it to you)

I would suggest you place an order with allied and report back what happens.
