Well both websites appear to be down - I can't get onto Farnell or my local Element14 nor are RS responding.

To answer your question though, it really boils down to who offers the cheapest freight.  Farnell are probably easier to deal with internationally if there is no local Farnell company to you.

I should add (just got onto both sites) they don't list the Pi yet.

Finally it has appeared on the Australian site of Element14.

Part# is 2081185 (this may be different for Farnell UK) and cost is AUS$38.00.

Available in stock within 30 days from Farnell. I ordered 2.

What are your plans for these?

::What is a RaspberryPi exactly,

It is an ARM based single board PC, runs on Linux which needs to be added by you. Will be interesting to see if MS's W8 WOA (Windows On ARM) will run on it later this year. - see http://www.liliputing.com for more details.

::and where do I get more information, given that the site you linked
::doesn't even provide any onward links?

As the site states it has been made a static page due to the amount of hits, yesterday you would have been able to get to the current Debian download (will be replaced by Fedora) and the forum plus general information.

If you can get to a Farnell/Element14/Newark website there are details on there, I've listed the part# to search for, or alternatively search for Raspberry Pi (the space is important).

I guess that Farnell and RS were overloaded as they were offline at one point, I doubt that Farnell perform web upgrades at 8am in the morning as their banner at the time stated.

I haven't completely decided yet probably play with a web based climate controller and perhaps try out the PVR firmware available on the net.

I've also got a GHK FEZ Panda ARM board which uses c# for programming to compare it with.

I'm wondering if Microsofts WOA (Windows 8 On Arm) will work on it, though I believe that isn't going to be made available to try out by Technet or MSDN users, but it will do native I2C and SPI plus buttons etc.

Well I've found a bit more info now. RS has a page to express interest
http://uk.rs-online.com/web/generalDisplay.html?id=raspberrypi - I
don't know if this means they've already sold out, or it's just
pre-orders. Farnell site still down. Disappointed if I've missed out
given I'm actually involved in IT support in a local school, and it
would be cool to take one of these in to show around.

You won't have missed out, none are available at the moment. The one the Pi people had hoped to have to sell (10K) have failed to arrive from China, so they have contracted RS and Farnell to make them and sell them (obviously slightly dearer). If you order one or more they will go on back order and Farnell and RS will make enough for orders received or so they say.

I'm on the Element14 R-Pi list and so far things are not going too smoothly for some people.

RS in Australia still haven't got it listed as yet. Element14 does, and for Oz and NZ freight is free on web orders, however Newark is charging US$20.00 P&P, E-14 for India will only sell to people with a sales tax number, unsure about Singapore, Farnell Export website in the UK is charging $20.00 for freight, but I think they will only sell to places that don't have a local Farnell office, I'm out of touch as to whether RS or Farnell charge for freight in the UK or Ireland for web orders.

UK states 30 day lead time, Aus is 38 dya lead time.

Ah - I got the impression Farnell had some to sell? So having
expressed an interest I should be on the RS list when they become
available.

Been into school now - mentioned these to the chap I work with there,
and he was already on the pre-order list. Apparently he was going to
get one on the quiet and bring it in to show me! Given our school IT
system runs as VMs on Linux, we reckon we have to have a go at running
one of these as a client on our network. The race is on to see who can
get one first...
