The regular price is $35 at the other distributors... I never realized newegg was gouging the Model B at $50 regular price?!?  It doesn't appear to come with anything like an SD card or case for that extra $15...  :o

the issue i have with MCM is they charge $10.50 for shipping.

since i buy a lot from amazon, i am a prime member (free shipping). Their pi used to be $42 but it has dropped

so pi from MCM with shipping $45.49 ($35 for the pi by itself)
pi from amazon (for me as a prime customer) $39.69

Good point.  Last time I ordered from MCM I ordered 6 Pis because that made the order total hit $250 which received free shipping.  Then I only paid tax.  I think the to-my-door price was about $36.80 per Pi.

I too am an amazon prime member and never bought a Pi there.  I have plenty.

Disclaimer: the 6 PIs weren't all for me, I have a few co-worker/friends that tinker in electronics and I only took 2 of the 6 that were ordered, the others took up my offer of a group purchase to save a couple bucks.

newegg took it out of my cart, must be sold out in under and hour.

Free shipping and no tax, I like that..

Thanks for the laugh.
