<t>I've found RS to be terrible. I registered on that morning and received a confirmation email a few days later telling me I was among the lucky people to be in the first batch and that I'd be notified when I could order.

Replied to my email within five minutes promising it would be dealt with, activation code received fifteen minutes later...

Re: RS - We missed your order email

Re: Tiny Home theater PC

Far better to rip the disc to somewhere on your network, once done it removed having to physically mount a disc every time anyway.

Re: Pi Tins : Casings for the Raspberry Pi
