Where to get a Pi2 quick (In terms of shipping) in HK?

I think egoman stopped making these.
Even if egoman still made these I would prefer one made in the UK because Chinese stuff blows up (It's not racist, because I am chinese, oh and it's said by a chinese celebrity). So... is there any OFFICAL distributor with a warehouse-ish in asia? Just asking

Re: I would love to use my 64G USB on my Pi

Kind of. Easiest way it to use BerryBoot, this allows you set the install drive and such, however, you will still need a SD card for the RPi to boot in to. So, simply put instructions... 1. Put BerryBoot on to a SD card (can be 1GB or less) 2. Attach USB Drive (needs to be more then 1GB obviously) ...

Just because a power supply can supply 2.5A means that it will output 2.5A! The load determines how much current it will draw, and the power sup...
