If I sign up for waiting lists at both Farnell and RS Components to try to get my RPi slightly sooner, will it cause any problems?

Am I committing to buy one when I go on the waiting list?

When are the waiting lists expected to be cleared?

    We're trying to keep away from questions about RPi distribution. You're better off checking with the distributor and saving your hardware/software questions for us. – Jivings Jun 12 '12 at 23:23
  • I asked a similar question a minute ago, and was pointed to this meta question by @jivings, where there seems to be consensus on the topic – je4d Jun 12 '12 at 23:42

One of my friends signed up to grab a Pi from both Farnell and RS, he received both without any problems. I'm not sure if this is technically allowed, but I doubt you'd have any grief - especially if you're registering interest now when the availability isn't anywhere near as scarce as it was a few months ago.

  • I did the same. They arrived a month apart. – popey Jun 12 '12 at 23:36
  • One of the companies was useless, I forget which one it was – Jivings Jun 12 '12 at 23:38
  • @Jivings RS only had a "register your interest" list for ages, hence why I went with Farnell. – berry120 Jun 12 '12 at 23:45
