When to buy raspberry pi?

2022-03-12 by: Unkmar

------------------------------------------------------

Completely on topic, since I plan to get two. I will likely install
raspbian to both.
One as a personal tool or toy.
One as a simple personal web server.

My searches have turned up mostly "Sold out" "Out of Stock". I am
guessing these things are close to first come first serve or seasonal
or. Well, When am I able to get them?

Another thought, any reasonably viable alternatives?

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I didnt see Unkmar's original email until I saw Mike's reply Yo Unk, I might have an older Pi somewhere in my hoard. Lemme know if you are interested and I'll start looking for it. Since I'm unemployed and hungry I have to ask at least a few bucks for it, lol. I have one Pi in active service... I use it as a file server for my old macs. Its even possible to boot a bare-metal IIgs over the network... http://appleii.ivanx.com/a2server/a2server_netboot.html da shizzle!

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ If you are up for a drive (which maybe not, since gas prices are high, and you are in the market for cheap computers), I'd check out the MicroCenter in Marietta, GA. MicroCenter has always had them whenever I went there. But that was before the supply chain issues of the 2020s. *- Chad W. Smith*
