    Just ordered my Pi 2 from Cana Kit.
    Nice!
    Seems like you have a better chance of getting your unit earlier than mine..
    Depends on where they are actually located. Having a Canadian web site doesn't always mean the company is in Canada. This company also ships to the US. It will be a while, I went for the cheapest ground shipping. I'll have to go have a look and see if I can see where they are physically located.

    EDIT: Looks like they are in Vancouver.

    Yeah but Cana Kit got them in stock. Element 14 is waiting for stock replenishment. I think I didn't get one of the last 2 units when I placed the order. And Cana Kit is probably getting their units from Element 14, too.

    I won't know until tomorrow I guess, when the order is actually filled and shipped. I got e-mail confirmation that my order was received/processed, automated I would think. They didn't show as out of stock, like everywhere else does. If and when I finally get it I'll let you know if it came in an Element 14 box.

    so, for a beginner what one on this link would be the best to buy ,the ultimate kit is only 20-30 $ more than a basic kit .

    I bought the basic starter kit as I'm going to need a second power pack. Got my shipped confirmation today. Most of the other stuff I already have. It all depends on what you are going to do with it? The complete starter kit is likely good for a beginner.. You get the WIFI adapter a HDMI cable, case and power supply, and NOOBS already on the SD card. Put the pieces together, plug it in and away you go. What I have on hand for my B+ equates to what's in the Ultimate pack. I have the GPIO ribbon cable and breakout board that plugs into a wireless bread board, Some switches, resisters, LED's etc. Plus some stuff that's not in it. I'm an electronic technician by trade so that side of it appeals to me. I don't mind bread boarding circuits and doing a little programing. It's actually something I miss since retiring.

    There are some kits here too, Packs : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits , they call them packs. So far I've bought most of my Pi stuff at Adafruit. They have some nice tutorials to help you set stuff up and get rocking with your Pi.

    Thanks for the info, I do like to tinker somewhat ,mostly self taught when it come to computer repair and building ,except for a 30 hr basic computer repair course , 1 night a week at Marconi ,back in 1999, I think I will get one to play with

    I would recommend at least getting the Complete Starter Pack. Then all you need is a monitor keyboard and mouse. The Pi will do 10880p so any decent flat screen TV will make a good monitor. That gets you sound too. I'm using a Logitech cordless Keyboard Touchpad combo. It uses a unifying receiver and works right out of the box on the Pi with no drivers needed. The WIFI dongle in the kit should work that way too. That saves you from wondering if what you have kicking around will work. If your wondering what NOOBS is look here, Downloads | Raspberry Pi. I'm running RASPBIAN on my B+ at the moment. I'm thinking I'm going to put RASPBMC on the 2 B, until 10 gets ported anyway. I'm going to plug the 2 B into my TV and use it as a Media Center, for now anyway.

    On the Pi, you can't add stuff like on a desktop PC. GPIO and USB are all you have. That said, there are lots of Hats around for the PI that you just plug in to the GPIO header. They call them hats but it's basically a daughter board. Pi HATs & Plates : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits They aren't exactly plug and play though, you may have to do some programing etc to get them to work. Most of that stuff have tutorials and basic how to's to get you going.
    I have a GPS module, Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout - 66 channel w/10 Hz updates [Version 3] ID: 746 - $39.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits and a temp pressure sensor, Adafruit BMP183 SPI Barometric Pressure & Altitude Sensor ID: 1900 - $9.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits , I want to play with. I'm saving those for summer, when its nice outside projects. Those will plug into my solder less breadboard.

    Just a multi installer really. You get a list of operating systems and you pick the one you want to use. I've never used it myself. I just make up my flash cards as I go along. If you've used Linux before you will likely have an easier time than I did finding things.
