I got a Raspberry Pi for my Birthday! Let’s unbox it!

I’ve wanted a Raspberry Pi for a long time, but i’ve never convinced myself to hit the ‘buy’ button. However, I have an awesome girlfriend who decided to surprise me for my birthday and get me one anyway!

In this video I unbox and put together my birthday present, a Raspberry Pi! I also add RetroPie to the machine, as this is going to be my dedicated retro game emulator.
