RS Components has manufactured 1000 Special Limited Edition Anniversary Raspberry Pi's.
These special edition Raspberry Pi's are the same as the current Model B Revision 2 boards, but with a blue PCB. Each board is stamped with a serial number and is supplied in a special presentation box together with a crystal blue user case, designed and donated by One-Nine-Designs, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Eben Upton, Executive Director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
These limited anniversary edition boards are not for general sale. RS will issue these through a variety of channels to support developers, enthusiasts and good causes. Most will be donated directly to charitable causes associated with young people and education around the world.
