With the launch of Raspberry Pi 3 last year, there’s been much less interest for the Raspberry Pi 2 board, especially there has not been any official price cut. But Seeed Studio has an interesting promotion right now where the company sells Raspberry Pi 2 board for just $19.50, or $20 off the normal price on their website.
Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.

If that’s the current generation Pi 2B (v1.2) then it’s the version with the same, 64-bit, BCM 2837 SoC as the Pi 3B. (The original BCM2836 SoC used on the Pi 2B has been EoLed, so they re-tooled the board to take the new SoC)
Though I see the Seed spec says BCM2836 – which is the old SoC. Whether that’s a sign that they are getting rid of their final stock of 2836s, or just a mistake on the spec sheet (i.e. they haven’t updated the specs with the new v1.2 SoC specs) I wouldn’t know.
Maybe good for the unenlightened people.
shipping to slovenia is still 15$, so no good for me.
If anyone has coupon code for Singapore Post, i’ll appreciate it.
The BCM2387 variant is silkscreened ‘Raspberry Pi 2 V1.2’ on the PCB and what Seeedstudio shows on the pictures is V1.1 — why bother anyway as @Fossxplorer already pointed out? It’s just another flash sale targeting the clueless.
As I tried with shipping to Slovenia with Singapore post also TENOFFSHIP applies.
There seems to be downward pressure on Raspberry Tart prices, a few places are discounting as well as above site
Why clueless ? Rasbperry Pi can be a very appealing choice for some people. Especially if you have your software designed around raspberry pi SoC or have a project that relies on it.
Just because foundation has bad practices, it doesnt make it a bad product for _everyone_
That link shows the normal price for me £26.49 (~$35) + shipping.
Maybe the price shows differently in the UK with VAT and/or other taxes?
Shipping to Czech cost 14.72$, which is really expensive, when I read in article that shipping to Germany is 2$
and code: TENOFFSHIP already expired…
It is costing about £31 – £32.99 pound in UK for RPI 3 B in UK ( Pihut, uk-rs-online ) + postage and tax
The UK eBay link comes in at £26.49 incl free UK postage
