The Raspberry Pi Foundation has today announced that its resale partners are no longer limiting orders to just one per customer.

The latest Raspberry Pi blog entry states: "As of this morning, you’ll be able to buy as many Raspberry Pis as you want from both RS Components and element14/Premier Farnell."

This is good news for people looking to buy classroom sets for schools and universities. The blog says that 4000 Raspberry Pis are currently being made every day.

As soon as orders were accepted, the initial batch of 10,000 Raspberry Pis sold out within a matter of seconds back in February.

RS Components are forecasting that orders placed now will start reaching customers in September, element14/Premier Farnell are only offering a slightly better delivery time of 4-6 weeks. Both Raspberry Pi partners are quick to point out there is a heft backlog - it seems everyone's after a piece of the Pi.

Those interested in getting in on the action can find links to purchasing a Pi here.
