Snuck in last night and got the souped up version with the Raspberry Pi accelerator on-board. Last time I had looked there was ~200 of these left .. last night this dropped to around 50 remaining, so I'm glad I grabbed one when I could.

I knew about this before it launched :)

I have two of the accelerated ones on order - one for myself and one for the museum. Already started writing a couple of games/designing graphics in glorious colour (256 colours!!!!!).

Not sure what I'll be doing with mine. Need to get both my DivIDE and DivMMC returned to Ben for fixing first though so that I can play around with them a bit more first.
