Buying Guide

Where can I get one and for how much?

  • Base price is $25 for the model A and $35 for the model B Raspberry Pi. This price excludes local taxes and shipping.
  • You can find out which peripherals and such are tested to work with the Pi in the Verified Peripherals section

Basic Setup

First little Raspberry Pi Steps...

  • Ensure you have all the equipment you need to go with your Raspberry Pi.
  • Become familiar with the board layout and connect it ready for power up.
  • If you have not been provided with a pre-setup SD card you will need to prepare one with your chosen Operating System distribution
  • If you are not using a HDMI monitor you may need to set up the correct video mode by editing the RPiconfig text file on the SD-card.
  • Note: On the Debian OS after you log in you need to type startx at the prompt to get a graphic desktop.
  • Particularly after first boot its important to do a clean shutdown with the command sudo halt
