    That's the model B, and not even the B+. I mean, not a bad deal, but just to keep in mind.

    New technology to me. I've heard and watched some about em on Hamnation and Amateur logic. Newer model looks good too. And because of the sale they seemed to blow out pretty quick. I put a hold on my order to add a pins sheild. Which the sold out. Lol hope I even get my Pi as of now. If anything ultra portable web computer.
    I like the way the DIY and development stuff is coming down in price and were seeing a lot of talented people putting out a lot of how to info.

    I need to really get back to where I used to be electronics wise, used to do all the way down to surface mount soldering, modify circuits, remember all icons on schematics. Out of practice out of memory DOHT!

    Well sparkfun has earned my respect. With my order being put on hold to add one shield which sold out before processing. Rest of order was pulled and ready to ship. Unlike other companies I've tried to buy from before which sold out yet said I had item in the cart. Spark fun really seems on top of their inventory...

    Can't wait for package to get here.

    Unit came in today already.. Much respect for sparkfun.
    Anyhow now the deal is closed. I have a thread going about making this a dv dongle or the end goal of it.
    Closing this one hope at least someone scored one if they wanted from this post

    From what I see so far to make this a dvap or dongle looks like parts alone can cost as much as buying a premade dongle hurmm....
