This is a kit, not just the base board -- but, yeah, it might not be affordable to some. There are cheaper Raspberry alternatives though.

However, this is showing $69.99 for me so I'm not able to even replicate OP's price.Frown

$5? You sure you're not think of the PI Zero?

Pi 2 has never been that cheap.

Just out of curiosity, i want to buy something similar to this to build a retropi.. want to know what people would think of the necessary components and overall "good deal" would be for them. This seemed to me like a decent deal, considering the parts included but if anyone could provide some other insight, it would be greatly appreciated.

If you actually need everything listed this is an ok price, but most people already have most of this stuff laying around. The power cable is just a standard micro usb, and I would imagine every slickdealer has an extra hdmi cable and micro sd card somewhere. You can get the case on ebay shipped from China for $2-$3 if you can wait a few weeks. You don't need a wifi card for retropie.

As for running retropi, it would run fine on the old raspberry pi 0 or 1, at least for most games. So you don't really need the 2 with the quad core processor. If you wait a while you should be able to get a zero for $5 at some point, or you can probably find a raspberry pi B+ for around $20 now.

$5 was for the Pi Zero, a whole different animal, and demand has far exceeded supply so far. They will be broadly available at $5... someday. For the moment, they sell out instantly if and when a dealer can get any.

For the model Pi on this one, any price below $30 is good. It's the most capable yet, but it might not be the best choice if you don't need the capabilities, or if you're running on a battery and don't want to burn power.

Still, you can buy these all day at Micro Center (B&M) for $30, as many as you want, so you're paying $20 here for the extras. Is it worth it? Might be, if you don't already have the bits. If you want to pick your own case or power supply or you don't need Wifi, not so much. Who doesn't have a spare USB power supply or phone charger at this point?

barebone Pi 2 would be your best bet.

I want to get the pi2 so that I can ultimately do other things with it, so I am pretty heart-set on getting the 2. Are there any benefits of having the wifi dongle for the retro-pi? I feel like its just convenient for tapping into the network (granted I don't know if it will work on the retro-pi format). Also, I figure if I double the pi over for another use it would prove to be beneficial as well...

Side note: I currently have a micro-usb cable, hdmi cable, micro sd card.

Anyone know the amperage for the power feed? or the max memory the pi can handle on the micro sd?

I am thinking that getting the pi2 and a case should run me like 40$?

I think they need 2 amps and you can load a max 64gb card
