Where to buy?
#1
Hi,

Back in February, I tried to order a couple from CPC... got "not available" and "we do not ship to Canada".  I also asked Asus about samples, and never received a response.

After the announcement of "availability" I was looking to buy a couple of Tinker boards to evaluate its compatibility with my Pi products.

I followed the link to Amazon, and instead of $54.99USD the sole source is listing it for $120USD + "free shipping"

Shipping for an item like this USPS to Canada is <$12

Does anyone know where I could order two at a reasonable price?

Thanks,

Bill

Thank you for the link.

They have joined the ranks of sellers who bundle over priced accessories... $75 for a tinker board and 16Gb flash card worth ~$5US.

Shipping to Canada is not bad - $15USD

Tinker Board is now distributed over ASUS distribution channels. Please check/ask nearest ASUS computer part distributor in CA (select motherboards). There are over 40 online shops and uncountable local branches with Tinker Board in CZ now (eg. one online shop per 250k inhabitants) some with Europe-wide distribution. Check your favorite price comparison site UK or DE or google with product number "90MB0QY1-M0EAY0". Check if some of those shops can ship outside EU. Check also ASUS US site.
I left this community in Aug 2017 due to ASUS bad product quality and ASUS community support that did not match my expectation.  Sad

I picked mine up yesterday locally at Microcenter, a local computer store. Perhaps you have something similar around?
