Raspberry Pi ramps up production, lifts purchase limit

Since going on sale in February, the miniature Linux computer known as the Raspberry Pi has had a very specific limitation — namely, orders were limited to one per customer due to demand. As of today, that's all over — users can order as many of the tiny machines as they'd like. The change is driven to an increase in production capacity: according to a recent blog post, 4,000 units of the "model B" Pi are being manufactured every single day. That's not to say the device will be shipping immediately — new orders are currently projected to arrive in September — but the policy change will no doubt be welcome news for those anxious to get their hands on the credit card-sized computer.
