A microcomputer is the perfect platform for learning about code and electronics. For $115 shipped, the Complete Raspberry Pi 2 Starter Kit at 9to5Toys Specials supplies all the hardware plus five video courses.

The kit supplies you with a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, which is the latest Pi to be released. It has 1GB of RAM assisting an upgraded ARMv7 chip, meaning it is up to six times faster than its predecessor. You also get a pack of essential accessories, including a power adapter, HDMI and USB cables, a Wi-Fi adapter, and an SD card with Raspbian OS pre-installed. The first of the courses in this kit shows you how to set up your Pi, and how to write basic programs. You can then learn to use more advanced python code, and get to grips with hardware projects — from robots, to general hardware, to the Internet of Things.

The contents of this kit would normally set you back $804, so the current deal represents great value. Grab it now to get 85% off plus free shipping to the Continental US.
