    Yeah it's actually US$35 for the more fully featured model. Nonetheless it's a pretty amazing piece of hardware for a very low price.

    The low low cost is very attractive, indeed.

    It's a shame the soldering, etc. means that rugged use is pretty much out of question. Though it's said it could be possibly function well in a weather-sealed unit for some interesting outdoor applications too...

    It seems like it might be up for order in Singapore. RASPBERRY-PI|RASPBRRY-PCBA|SBC, RASPBERRY PI, MODEL B | element14 Singapore

    Seems legit based upon what the main website mentioned: And breathe… | Raspberry Pi
