Some People Are Crazy Enough to Drop Over £150 on a Raspberry Pi

By Sam Gibbs on at

If you happen to be lucky enough to be holding one of the first few Raspberry Pis that made it out the door, then you could be sitting pretty. Right now they’re selling thick and fast on eBay for record sums, with one or two even going for over £150 – not a bad profit if you’re not too attached to it. But then that’s a bit against the spirit of the Pi, which has just had its schematics laid bare to the world too.

While I’m pretty excited about the prospect of getting one of these mini-marvels in for a play, there’s no way I’m going to be shelling out over £100 on one – that’s just crazy talk. But apparently some people are that desperate.

Would any of the Giz UK Pi-craving folk consider dropping a ton or more on one from eBay? Or better yet, would anyone with a board already fancy turning a quick and sizable profit?

Thanks David!
