What's the size of a credit card, plugs into your computer monitor, and can build motion-activated teddy bears, walkie-talkies, and small robots? Uncover the Raspberry Pi 2's possibilities. Get the Complete Raspberry Pi 2 Starter Kit for $115 at Escapist Deals.

This bundle comes with the Raspberry Pi 2 microcomputer (the newest model), a cable starter kit for added flexibility, and a ton of cool projects to get you started. You'll learn how to write a Python program to power a number guessing game, use the Pi to run Christmas lights, turn the Pi into a low-cost computer, build a teddy bear that laughs when there's nearby motion (creepy!), retrofit the Pi into a walkie-talkie, and plenty more. You'll pick up practical, hands-on knowledge along the way, polishing your coding skills, and learning how to work with hardware-all the skills you need to dream up (and carry out) other projects once you wrap up these courses.

That does not look anywhere near as delicious as the name implied.

This bundle comes with the Raspberry Pi 2 microcomputer (the newest model)

You do realize that TODAY they released the Pi3 and the PiZero was released after the 2, meaning although it's not as powerful, even if you posted this yesterday, you'd still be wrong.

With the Pi3 weighing in at 50%-60% faster than the Pi2 (and 64bit instead of 32bit, so that's set to rise once 64bit optimizations are factored in) and the prices is virtually the same, why would anyone buy a Pi2?

[edit]

And a base price of $35 for the machine I hope you're throwing a lot of goodies in with that price tag!

With a wider range of compatibility (including Snappy Ubuntu Core & Microsoft Windows 10),

It's Windows 10 IoT support, not Win10 as that line conveys, which is very different (lacking a proper shell for a start)

So what you're really charging $115 for is about $80 worth of gear and some ebooks that replicate the billion and one free posts available on the internet?
