New Raspberry Pi bundles from RS Components deliver reduced purchase price for programming enthusiasts

Supplier News

RS Components announces the availability of two new product bundles for the Raspberry Pi that will enable customers to save money on their purchases.

Providing customers even better value for money when purchasing the low-cost single board computers together with accessories from RS Components, the bundled offer delivers a 20% cost saving over the same items purchased separately.

The two Raspberry Pi bundles on offer consist of a Raspberry Pi Model A board (256MB RAM) plus 8GB SD card, and a Raspberry Pi Model B board (512MB RAM) plus 8GB SD card.

The 8GB SD card within each bundle comes pre-installed with the Raspberry Pi Foundation's New Out Of Box Software (NOOBS), which is recommended for first-time Pi users. This software presents the user with a choice of operating systems to install, including Raspbian, Pidora and two versions of XBMC. Once installed the user can return to the NOOBS interface by holding down the shift key during boot, which enables it to switch to a different operating system, or to overwrite a corrupted card with a fresh install of the current card.

According to Glenn Jarrett, Global Head of Product Marketing, Raspberry Pi facilitates an affordable, inclusive environment for enthusiasts and young people around the world to develop their interest and skills in computer programming, irrespective of background. A key objective therefore, is to keep the costs to customers as low as commercially possible through offers like these new bundles. 

Both the Model A and Model B Raspberry Pi bundles are available to order direct from stock at RS Components for same-day despatch.

RS Components is the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products.
