The Raspberry Pi is such a ripoff

The Raspberry PI is sold as a cheap single board computer, less than $40.  All you need is a sd card, keyboard, mouse, and a tv (hdmi or composite).  Balderdash.  To get the most use out of this alleged cheap computer you must have a usb wireless adapter, because only plebs use the built in wired network card.  You will also need a powered usb hub to connect other things.  Don't forget a table to place this ball of lies upon, and a chair to hold up your unworldly behind.  You will also need clothes to wear, a bed to sleep in, a house to put all this stuff into.  Don't forget the geopolitical infrastructure necessary to build and electrify this dastardly device.  As you can see this $30 computer can actually cost tens of thousands if not millions of dollars.  What a rip off, no other sbc or microcontroller has such onerous requirements.
