High quality components like the very latest UK edition Model B Pi, 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.
UK made Model 2 B Raspberry Pi. 700MHz processor, 512MB onboard memory, and 4 USB ports, Ethernet socket. We chose the Model 2 B for this kit, because it is fast, and gives you a lot more scope for projects later. It is handy to have free USB ports for a whole range of reasons, such as to swap files on and off the Pi with a memory stick.
