So now the case costs more than the computer!

I don't understand how they can make that thing for $5 much less sell it for that.

It doesn't even show as being a stock item over here from two big national resellers.

Only selling through RS and Adafruit in the U.S. as of now.
More retailers to follow ASAP, from what i read.

This:
As in LPK25 as controller.. .so that would make the Pi the host for the soft synth.
You're right: technically the LPK25 is a MIDI controller (and nothing else); the Pi would provide the synth, sound fonts, effects, and so on. No (other) computers needed.

Adafruit has Pi Zeros in stock, but act fast. In the time it took me to order they sold 35 of the 70 listed.

Yeah, the increase in performance (partially due to the 64 bit architecture) is rather interesting.
The amount of RAM staid the same though, which i don't quite get, since manufacturers usually double the RAM when switching to a 64 bit chipset and architecture.
The onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth do make this an excellent platform for IoT applications though, like my daughter's automated blogging birdfeeder project.
Once mine comes in i'll benchmark it against my RPi2 webserver.

It wouldn't surprise me to see one with some more memory. As it sits, the wi-fi and BT really make the cost like what? $20.. even $15 for the PC. With shipping you will pay $10-$20 for external wifi and BT

Pi Zero got an update recently. Now for the same low price of $5, the board comes with a camera connection.

Finally, now i can replace my daughter's birdfeeder project RPi A with an RPi 0, which means we can use the larger birdhouse that she's  been wanting to use for ages  :D
