That includes UK Shipping - the base price is £9.95.RaTTuS wrote:£12-50
We think £9.95 is very reasonable considering the quality of the product.recantha wrote:Ouch.
it's near enough the same price as the pi house (9.95 GBP) & adafruit's case ($14.95) with at least twice the material used, maybe even 3+ times the amount. i think it's pretty reasonablerecantha wrote:Ohhhh, right. Under £10 plus postage. That's really very reasonable. My apologies.

Having said that, it's not everyone who will be using the GPIO, and so will therefore have no use for the slot which, in my opinion anyway, does slightly spoil the appearance of that side of the case.liz wrote:The Pibow has a slot for a ribbon cable which allows it to come neatly out of the side if you're using one with the GPIO - I think it's the first case I've seen that does that.
One of the things about the low price of the Pi is it makes accessories look expensive. Spending £12.50 on a case for a £30 computer just feels wrong even if it is a reasonable price for what you are getting.pibow wrote: We think £9.95 is very reasonable considering the quality of the product.
I think that because the RasPi is being sold just as a 'bare board' it is distorting the perceived pricing somewhat.plugwash wrote:One of the things about the low price of the Pi is it makes accessories look expensive.

If you had longer screws and a thick bolt you could mate two together. The bottom one has the screws placed in from the bottom, the top one has the screws the 'normal' way.pygmy_giant wrote:If you had longer screws could you fix 2 together?
The best bet for this would be 'build up' layers, that do nothing but increase the height and make room for daughterboards and batteries and the like. We can cut down on the internal struts as well to make them easier for hacking.pygmy_giant wrote:Would it be possible to have a downstairs compartment with a battery pack?
