The raspberry reminds me when in the early 90's I bought the components to assemble my first PC, for those too young I will explain shortly. PC were expensive, and if you were under a budget you will buy all the parts such the casing, HD, memory, processor, modem card, video card, serial port card and floppy drive. Then you will have to assemble the PC, and the trauma was to set IRQ pins in each card, and mother board to make the whole thing work.
Now days there nothing to play with it, you buy an all in one PC, a laptop or a tablet. It is all there sealed, and nothing to play with it.
Well the Raspberry and the Arduino have brought in that fun part again.
But I am not saying that the Raspberry is a toy, it is a very powerful computer, and much more advance and faster than my first 386 DX40. So if you are an adult, do not think this is a toy. There is a lot of professional projects that you can do it with a Raspberry.
The operating system based on Linux is very fast, easy to work and reliable.
I highly recommend the clear casing for the Pi2, my nephew loved the fact that he could look at all components, the pin connections. He got hooked into it.
We prepared two SD cards, one that boots using a old 7" LCD TV with RCA connections, and another SD card to boot with HDMI, it may seem meaningless but the kid was able to appreciate and learn the difference.
I am very glad I bought the Raspberry, I share time with my nephew, and I moved him a step ahead in life.
Make sure you have all accessories needed to start your Raspberry the same day you are ready to play with it, that way you will avoid the disappointments as not having all parts the same day.
If possible try to recycle and use an old keyboard and mouse is part of the fun, or in my case I did not have the keyboard and mouse around, so I bought the most economical that I was able to find. It just does not make sense to buy a keyboard o mouse that cost more than the Raspberry.
Also for those without experience in Linux and Raspberry I highly recommend the book Raspberry Pi For Dummies since the Pi2 is so new, is not on the book, it only has up to the B+. But that is not a reason not to buy it since the book relates more to the OS and the basics of the Raspberry. I bought the digital version, for the Tablet.
Amazon Link to the Book:
Also here are a couple of links for an economical keyboard and a mouse which I bought for the Raspberry:
The keyboard I bought it for $5.41 + free shipping, they seem to have raised the price, try to look for something like this for under $10
Amazon Mouse $6.99: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005EJH6RW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
What you need to get everything working - 32GB microSD class 10, miniwifi module (D-link 131 or compatible), Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI cable or Composite (4-poles - many don't work). Go to the raspberrypi website and download noobs1.7. I used OSMC for everything.
As of now, we can't stream Netflix or Airplay with IOS 9, but it will airplay with iTunes all IOS which is pretty good. I can connect with my MacBookAir El Capitan and Airplay iTunes, or pair with bluetooth to stream music. Very solid unit.
In terms of the seller, my order arrived with all parts expected and as advertised in a very timely fashion.
I ended up buying a different model of pi for my own use. Which brings me to the fact this particular piece of hardware is rather inexpensive as such things go. It is a gateway component though. Kind of like how a starter deck to a collectible card game only costs a few dollars yet the hobby built around that game costs hundreds. Expect similar costs associated with this if you are going to make good use of it. It is only one single unit now. Further down the road you will find you spend millions of dollars automating everything in your life with more of these and related products. I have only owned one a month and I am certain I have gone over my first hundred with companions for it.
Had to dock a star for the case. There are very few usage scenarios where it would be a good choice. The additional cost would be better spent on any other case then the one the board is paired with. The openings in the case allow easy access to every output and input on it. To easy access if they aren't in use. Touching some of those connectors can short out the device.
