based on several slickdealers suggestion, i will keep this post but will not recommend this any longer as it is most likely a scam.

Hi I found this relatively new website that sell Pi 2 at decent price link [berryelec.net]. I just bought one $35.xx after tax. Free shipping to CA no sure about other states.

They have Model A ($17.99) and older model B ($27.99) as well if you don't need the greatest and latest. http://berryelec.net/pi-kits/

Note: They only accept paypal only for now.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

this is gonna be my first Pi experience but based on what i read it can boot to Win 10 console, have not seen desktop boot for now.

I am getting this for linux, to install Win10 on Pi2, it requires you to have a win 10 PC.

Win 10 embedded runs, kind of. Not true windows, however.
Raspbian (wheezy) seems to be the most preferred OS, if you just want something that offers easy web browsing and simple office work (via libreoffice). Of course, there are those who buy this to run server, cloud, and ent.

A surprisingly capable little machine and a good machine for learning programming.

I did at one time, but lately they have all been used for projects. I would of chose the kit with a case, but it was not available.

Edit: I am more worried about the website being legit, but that's why I used a credit card.

Sounds fishy. That domain was registered at the end of last month, for one year, using a privacy protection service. There are limited items on the site. Only accepts PayPal. There is an address on the site which, according to Google maps, is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Phone number on the site says "Phone No.:" (i.e., no phone number).
