This service is part of deep-watch public offer. Check this blog to see a full list of public offers.

Raspberry Pi zero is a single board computer at the price of $5. It has a 1GHz processor, 512MB DDR, 1 HDMI port and 1 USB port. All those together is powerful enough to run a website like the one you are visiting now. It is such a bargain that almost everyone, who knows those specs mean, wants to have one.

Since the start of shipping in Dec 2015, it has been being out of stock in most time. Fans want it so much that they even built sites dedicated to check Raspberry Pi Zero stocks. whereismypizero.com and thepilocator.com are the most famous ones among them. However, even with them, you need go to their websites to check stock from time to time, and some of the distributors listed there may be out of your interest.
