Nice to see today's announcement!

I ordered two RPis from Farnell (as I already had a business account). Delivery forecast for w/b 17/09/12. How does this compare with RS/personal Orders?

However RS have cases (black/white/clear) for under a fiver that may attract you to them. Sure undercuts the ModMyPi offering ...

RS shows me an estimated dispatch in 11 weeks, which is a week longer than the date you are given.

Where? I keep checking both the RS main web site and their US subsidiary (Allied), and the only cases listed are the big, red UGLY Bud cases.

This is the link you get sent to for Allied in North America www.alliedelec.com/lp/120626raso/
but it doesn't look like they have the nice RS cases like this one http://raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com/produ ... seblk.aspx

Yeah... I noticed that... Also interesting is that if one orders *just* cases (I already have more Pis on order), they still give an 11 week estimated delivery time...
