Raspberry Pi Cases Now Avialable From ModMyPi

Back in February of this year, Raspberry Pi began taking orders for $35 desktop PCs. The Ultra Low-cost PC (ULPC) is just a circuit board and requires you to supply your own storage media, micro USB charger (for power), display, keyboard, and mouse. Though many people have expressed interest in this little product, there’s still no easy was to house it.

Well… a UK-based company named ModMyPi is now offering cases for the ULPC. The small plastic cases, shown above, come in 5 colors and retail for £7.99 (about $9.87 US). They are already accepting pre-orders  via their website and the cases are expected to ship later this month.

ModMyPi is also offering a full Raspberry Pi setup kit that includes: case, SD card with Linux pre-loaded, keyboard, mouse, USB hub, USB SD card reader, USB WiFi card, and all the cables needed to hook up your tiny little PC. This kit sells for £64.99 (about $80.15 US) and is also expected to ship later this month.
