Creatron have the Rasp Pi and the necessary accessories. They have two
stores in Toronto. I thought the price was pretty reasonable, but don't
remember the exact amounts.

> I don't know if it is available in their bricks and mortar stores, but it

> $47.00 Canadian (less than US$35, the nominal and never discounted
> price from authorized distributors in the US)!
> Comes with an 8GB Micro SD card containing Windows 10 IoT.
> (Consider this a free bonus, with a defect that is easily remedied.)
> The page spends more ink on Linux than Windows.
> They don't seem to offer cases, power supplies, or other accessories.
> The picture shows a thing that is the size and shape of an SD card
> with as raspi logo (as well as a MicroSD card).  But the Raspberry Pi
> 2 can't use an SD card.  Perhaps it is a superfluous MicroSD to SD
> converter.
