*SNAP!* :-)

Well, I've had mine for a while. I picked up the BBC B+ 128K from the work rubbish pile back in around 1997 and bought the "Toastrack" a couple of years ago off eBay.

I finally got around to fixing the Beeb last year (bad memory + buffer chip) and had to send the "Toastrack" away to get fixed (apparently a whole load of resistors had just self-destructed and crumbled away).

It says the speccy next is out of stock on the web site - so they must have flown off the shelves. They are charging quite a lot for RTC and the few addons that appear to be included in the more expensive version - If the board layout hasn't changed that much, I don't think the addtioanal components will be that expensive to fit yourself if you can handle a soldering iron.

Did they do away with the raspberry pi helper board in the end?

Well, of couese it is out of stock - It's never been freely available other than for Kickstarter backers. It's rumoured they will do another run soon. So, pricing that's shown on the web site is largely academical.

The extensions (RTC, memory, RPi Zero, WiFi) are easy enough to add. For most, you don't even need a soldering iron.

The RPi is no longer needed for HDMI output if that was the question. But it's still there, acting as an optional co-processor for whatever stuff you like to use it. People have written music players and tape recorder emulation for it.
