    My order is still pending (even though it was done on day 1) but am very interested in a case for when it gets here.

    My order is also still pending (that will teach me for using element14, friends that have ordered from RS after me have already received theirs), but I would be interested in a case.

    Do you have a projected price point? I'm going to be less interested in a case if it's more than the board itself.

    Apologies guys, I have been "on the road" helping a few companies to save a few $100K in energy cost...

    back to the subject..my guy has a design in the system. I want to get it rendered and I will get some pics up next week.

    in terms of cost. I dont want this to be more than $20 for a good quality case. However, the anodised aluminium will be a premium product and really only for the chaps who have their raspberries on show as it were. I am thinking this may be a larger case which routes cables internally so that it doesnt look like a spider.

    I have got to say the interest is quite significant so I may make my engineer work a little harder.

    unfortunately, I was tardy on ordering my pi so I am waiting for permission to even order the damn thing from RS...

    regardless, I shall press on.....I cant wait to have 5 of these units serving my 50tb collection to my TVs..(My garage is full of DVDs and Bluray since I got a norco!)

    Cheers

    R

    Hey, any updated on this case? I want to order a case this week, and there are a few on eBay, but I would prefer to get a local one :)

    I've ordered two cases from element14, along with my second RaspberryPi, they are $8.something, shipped free along with the Pi.

    Delayed... again.
    Ordered mine from RS Australia on the 17th of July. Was supposed to ship today and have now been told it has been delayed until the 3rd of December!

    What the?

    Any one else experiencing this? Should I try at Element 14?

    RS appear to have horrendous supply problems somehow, Element 14 have billions. Can your RS order and order from Element 14.

    Looking for someone that can mock up a case that I have an idea for:

    It would include a cheap 7port hub. some sell with 4 ports on one side and 3 on the other. This could then be included in the case with a power supply and the raspberry pi......


    Or just an ALu one.
