I have a few spare 3B units that I will let go with the case for 65$ - Brand New units

I have a few Asus Tinker Boards too.

Unfortunately there are only limited prospects for improvement on the horizon. Most of the remaining shortages are caused by the Americans refusing to accept China's progress up the economic value chain, and by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Neither of these issues are likely to be resolved any time soon.

Are the low grade Broadcom chips really a problem? My 3B+ box says "Made in United Kingdom", so it must be the chips. It looks like RPis use Broadcom CPUs designed specifically for Rpis. Maybe Broadcom is busy producing chips for others and ignores RPi...

There are occasionally some decent package deals. I bought the $99 Pi-Top Pi4 from this deal: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/best-bu ... t-2494338/

It's a nicely packaged and assembled Pi4 with case, ps, fan, speaker, cables etc., and some added bonuses:
- built-in 5-hr rechargeable battery for mobile use (e.g,, control unit on a robot)
- built-in OLED mini-display panel and 4 programmable control buttons
- supplied connection headers for built-in module connection board
