    A bootable SD card (UK)

    When it is built and we have an image that works on the Pi we will make an SD card image available for download, this perk gets you an SD card in the post to a UK address on the day of release. (We will post them first class the day before the release is available to download). It will be at least an 8GB card. It might not boot to a desktop, that depends on what packages can be built.

    Name a Pi

    One of the Pi units in the farm will be clearly marked with your name, we will also put your name on a roll of honour on the project website. This will also be used as the hostname for the builder so in reports of packages you will see "package built by *yourname*" so you can see what stuff your Pi built. This also includes an SD card to a UK address, add £10 for worldwide shipping of the SD card.

    Estimated delivery: April 2014
