Have you told you to buy a Raspberry Pi in recent years? Well, today it may be the day you actually do it.
Building a Raspberry Pi Media Center or a retro game console can be difficult if you do not know what you are doing. You need to find the right parts, and often you can stop spending more than $ 100 for a project that should have been relatively inexpensive.
Therefore, the starter kit is a good starting point for new Raspberry Pi builders. Starter packages tend to be cheap, and they can be a good way to get all the parts you need without too much work.
Right now, Woot sells a Raspberry Pi 3 B + Ultimate Starter Kit and a Super Retro Gaming Kit for $ 70 each. It's $ 20 of an already cheap kit. Both kits come with a Raspberry Pi 3 B +, a power supply, heat sinks, a 32 GB Samsung SD card, an HDMI cable, and building instructions.
Ultimate Starter Kit is aimed at novice programmers or people who want to build a small media center for their TV. It is packed with a clear case, zippers, LED lights, ribbon cables, an Ethernet port and a dual-band card with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless LAN. Not to mention, it comes pre-installed with NOOBS, a simple OS installer, so you can hit the ground.
Super Retro Gaming Kit is obviously aimed at retro players. While it does not come pre-loaded with any games, it comes with two SNES style games, an SNES style feature with built-in fan, a RetroPie download guide, a Bluetooth connection and a Wi-Fi connector.
