Roughly four years ago, the first Raspberry Pi was released, and the company behind the bare-bones computer never expected it to take off like it has. Due to its super affordable price, the device has now sold ten million units. It has proven to be popular among younger people and adults alike, with the Raspberry Pi Foundation now manufacturing tens of thousands of units each day.
To help celebrate that milestone, the company has announced the Raspberry Pi Starter Kit.
Very early on, we decided that we would offer the bare-bones Raspberry Pi board without accessories: that way, cost-conscious customers get the lowest possible price, provided they can beg or borrow USB peripherals, a power supply and an SD card. Over the years, Raspberry Pi distributors have built on this, producing some fantastic bundles for people who would rather get everything they need from a single source.
To celebrate the ten millionth Raspberry Pi, for the first time we’ve put together our own idea of what the perfect bundle would look like, creating the official Raspberry Pi Starter Kit.
- A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
- An 8GB NOOBS SD card
- An official case
- An official 2.5A multi-region power supply
- An official 1m HDMI cable
- An optical mouse and a keyboard with high-quality scissor-switch action
- A copy of Adventures in Raspberry Pi Foundation Edition
The starter kit is currently only available in the UK for £99+VAT, but will be coming to the rest of the world within a few weeks.
