Details

This is a kit that gives you all the different components you need to get your Raspberry Pi up and running with your TV or monitor. Find out more below;

Raspberry Pi Model B (UK made, not the China version): 700MHz processor, 512MB onboard memory, and 2 USB ports, Ethernet socket. We chose the Model B for this kit, because it is a little faster, and gives you a lot more scope for projects later.  It is handy to have the free USB port for a whole range of reasons, such as to swap files on and off the Pi with a memory stick.

Keyboard & Mouse Combo: 2.4GHz ultra slim wireless full size optical keyboard and mouse, reliable and precise (1000DPI). Operating range - 10m. 1 year+ of use between battery changes. Keyboard requires x2AAA standard batteries. Mouse requires x1AAA standard battery. (Batteries are not included in the kit) . A single, small & unobtrusive USB dongle.  The mouse and keyboard share a single usb socket – because the dongle communicates to both (wired keyboards and mice don’t share usb ports). This means you still have a free socket to plug in all sorts of kit and devices... just think along the lines of gaming, videos, music, photographs.

8GB SD card with latest NOOBS pre-installed:

Includes applications; Scratch and Python Games. Pre-installed software lets you start the Pi in different modes (OS); Raspbian, Raspberry Pi OpenELEC (Choose, play music/photos/videos. Connect the Pi behind your TV, add a drive with your videos etc. on it. Browse using wireless mouse). ArchLinux (advanced users), Pidora (alternative to Raspbian). RaspBMC (like OpenELEC, built upon Raspbian, standard OS for Pi - use it for other things. RISC OS (alternative to Raspbian. Compact & fast for advanced users). High Power [All Region].

Power Adaptor: gives 2000mA, 5v and has dual USB power from a US/EU/UK plug (all plugs included).  

All the cables you need:

Red Micro noodle style USB cable: 1m long, connects to the power adaptor.

Orange Gold-plated 1.5m long premium HDMI to HDMI cable, V1.4: supports audio and 1080p video output.

Blue noodle style audio cable with 3.5mm jacks: allows you to connect sound to TV or HIFI.

HDMI to DVI adaptor: allows you to connect into a computer monitor (DVI Male 24 pin + 1 pin, HDMI Female 19 pin).

Micro SD card reader: whistle style. This is great for getting photos from your laptop to the Pi, or as a means to store media like films.

Strong stylish and durable pi case: easy assemble click together case that will protect your pi

Why Buy Me

This kit is ideal for first time Raspberry Pi buyers as it has everything you need to get started including easy to follow instructions.  Being wireless, it also lets you tuck the Pi away quickly when not in use.

Benefits include

High quality components like the UK edition Model B Pi, metal single body wireless keyboard, the 2 Amp power adapter and colourful flat cables - see the other tabs for details.

 

2 Amp (2000mA) power adapter.  You have to be a little careful with the Pi that you are not mean with the power you give it! If you are mean, you are limited to what components you can add, and mice, trackpads and other peripherals can start misbehaving.

 

Dual USB socket power adapter.  We provide this so you have a spare socket for future use.  This means that if you want to add a USB hub, powered speakers or any USB powered device to your system, you can do so with this socket.  It means that all the power to the devices at desk height is only 5V (totally safe).

 

Proper full size keyboard and mouse.  Dinky keyboards with track pads are fun too, but can be tricky with things like drag and drop (Which you will want to do on Scratch) this kit has a full size keyboard which means you won’t get hampered if you suddenly decide to write your 10,000 word essay on your Pi.  This combo also has a single tiny USB dongle meaning you still have another USB port free to plug in other devices such as wifi stick, memory stick etc.

 

UK made Model B Raspberry Pi. 700MHz processor, 512MB onboard memory, and 2 USB ports, Ethernet socket. We chose the Model B for this kit, because it is a little faster, and gives you a lot more scope for projects later.  It is handy to have the free USB port for a whole range of reasons, such as to swap files on and off the Pi with a memory stick.

 

As long as you follow the instructions, this kit is easy to set up.  Everything just works out of the box. The puzzle case is a bit of a puzzle - but then that’s the idea!
