Newark element14 has the Raspberry Pi 2 for $35 plus shipping.




I’ve ordered one from them. Unfortunately they don’t appear to have them in stock at the moment, but they’ve given me an expected ship date of 2/24/15.

The new Pi looks pretty powerful yet still very low cost at  $39.99.


The Raspberry Pi 2 is the latest evolution of the popular Raspberry Pi single board computer. While it may look just the the Raspberry Pi B+, the Raspberry Pi 2 features a new quad-core ARM7 based Broadcom CPU running at 900MHz and 1GB of RAM. These specs give the new Pi 2 around 6x the performance of previous versions. 


Besides the processor and RAM upgrades, the Raspberry Pi 2 still retains the same layout, connections, and power requirements of the B+. 40 GPIO pins, 4 USB ports, 10/100 Ethernet port, and a MicroSD slot. The video card also remains the same. 


In addition to the operating systems available on the NOOBs image (make sure you get a new image, previous versions will not work), the Raspberry Pi Foundation has been working closely with Microsoft to bring Windows 10 to the new Pi in upcoming months.


The board was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of bringing low-cost, easy to program computers to developing countries and children. 


You'll need to supply your own USB keyboard, mouse, display, HDMI cable, USB A to Micro cable, 2.0A 5V USB power supply.
