1. Power supply. You need a power supply MICRO USB connector and at least .7 amps. A Kindle fast charger works fine.
2. Display cable. a regular HDMI cable works fine if your monitor supports it. The composite connector works, but it is *very* difficult to get a usable picture on a TV this way. You'll need to edit a configuration file to change resolution.
3. Keyboard and pointing device. Because you only have 2 USB ports and a wired ethernet port, you'll have to juggle whether you want to use a wireless USB, a keyboard/touch pad combo, etc. Most standard keyboards will work on it.
4. Internet connection (if you want internet connectivity). This can be wired or wireless. I used the edimax 7811 adapter which worked right out of the box.
5. Operating System on an SD card (minimum 4GB, class 4 - Amazon has a Sony 16GB class 10 for $11-$12 - that's what I would use). There are a number of different ways to go. The Rasberry Pi foundation uses a Debian implementation of Linux called "Wheezy" which works well. This is a free download.
6. powered USB hub. If you want more peripherals or do not have a keyboard/touchpad combo you might want one of these.
HINTS: How-to-geek has an excellent step-by-step guide to setting it up. But here's what you do. On a Windows machine, download Wheezy (free), use imgwriter(free) to write the image file to your SD Card (you can't just copy the file to the card).Read more ›
The Raspberry Pi is a fantastic platform on which kids (or anyone) can learn to program and work with their very own computer. My own kids are using one as an interface for all sorts of science experiments learning to code with the Python programming language and using another Raspberry Pi as a media center. I also visit my local hackerspace and see what other people are doing with the Raspberry Pi. You should seek out a hackerspace in your area for assistance!
Purchasing a single unit such as listed above will not give you all that you need to operate the system. You will need an HDMI monitor (or DVI monitor with an HDMI to DVI converter cable), a power supply, USB hub, USB mouse, and USB keyboard for a minimal set up. Good luck!
The whole idea here is to be able to try things and make mistakes and still be able to get to the finish line--and you get to choose where the finish line is.
There is a small learning curve with the Raspberry Pi. First is what to buy to get it to work. Second is how to connect it. Third is how to get a boot image burned on an SD card. Fourth is learning the operating system and programming tools. These things are covered in several books, but here is a quick summary of my experience that might be helpful:
0. The Raspberry Pi Model B Revision 2.0 (512MB).
1. Raspberry Pi Debian 6 "Wheezy" 4GB SD Card Boot Disk. Actually I used this to get started quickly. You can go to the Raspberry Pi web site and figure out a compatible SD card and use a Mac, PC, or Linux PC to burn a boot "disk" from a downloaded image. For me getting started quickly was worth the extra $15-20.
2. Plugable USB 2.0 4 Port Hub and BC 1.1 Fast Charger with 2.5 Amp Power Adapter, charges Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, iPad 4, iPad Mini, Nexus 7. This powers the Pi and provides extra powered USB ports.
3. StarTech.com 6 Inch Micro USB Cable - A to Micro B (UUSBHAUB6 Inch) to connect from a powered USB port on the HUB and the Raspberry Pi power port.
4. USB A to Mini USB B 6 inch cable to connect from a USB port on the Raspberry Pi to the PC port on the Hub.
5. Mini USB Keyboard Model KB1500U (I had this and it worked with the HUB.)
6. Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 USB 5V 100 mA (I had this and it worked with the HUB.)
7. HDMI cable.
8. TV with an extra HDMI input.Read more ›

The latest version is better; it has more cores and does not freeze up quite as much is this one.Published 21 days ago by Pavel
I opened this much later because I bought the wrong one (had wanted a B+).
Put Noobs on it, plugged it in, and up she come!
This'll work JUST FINE.
I had this for several years now. It's somewhat obsolete now with RPi2 out now. I cannot run Kodi without it being lagging. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nana
