Accessories needed with RaspberryPi 3
The essential list for general use is: 
• MicroSD card 
• Power supply:  5.1 V micro USB 2.5 Amp wall cell phone chargers are perfect for most projects.
• Display & Connectivity Cable: HDMI to HDMI / DVI lead to connect to your TV or monitor.
• Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor/TV
• Pi Case – to protect your Pi there are numerous types of cases available as well as some pretty awesome 3D-printable options. Keep in mind you need to consider whether you need an opening to access the General Purpose Input/Output pins.
• Ethernet cable (Model B/B+ only) if for some reason you don’t plan to use the newly added on-board WiFi

Sorry for the noob question but what are the uses of this?

It's an inexpensive, low power computer. The uses are nearly infinite, but people use them to teach themselves/their kids coding, for home automation projects, as VPNs, for Kodi/video servers, etc.

Here are a few examples, but there are tons more:

Thanks. I have been trying to educate myself after asking the question 
I was looking for the power supply and the best I could find was this and this but was wondering if the cellphone charging cable can be used instead?
Also they have the case for $6.88 here or you can buy this which includes the heatsink or this which includes the fan.

You can use a cell charger, if it meets the current requirement (2A, i think).

Just got one from Amazon for the wife NES. Could not buy the NES classic like she wanted.

Current requirements are 2.5 A and my cell phone changer has only from 750 mAmp to 1000 mAmp 

what a piece of crap website they have - not worth wasting any more time to save 10 bucks.

Thanks for the non affiliate link tip! Def in for one...worth it to replace my original Pi, emulators run so much better on the 3, plus integrated wifi, etc

Looks dead : "The promo code RASPI30 is no longer applicable to this order."

Deal is dead, I think this was to generate a mailing list and sell customer information. They have the item in stock and only reveal the deal is no longer active after they have your information.

Also, look at Raspberry Pi Zero W. It's $10 and has wifi and bluetooth.

It's not as fast as the Pi 3, but for a lot of projects, it's just fine. And, if you're just going to play around, it's certainly fine.

Is it good enough for a digital picture frame project?

Probably over-kill for that.  It can stream full HD 1080P video so picture frame would be a piece of cake.

Their original promo was actually a free Pi for each $20 order and free next day shipping.  Needless to say, that didn't last long...  (What were they thinking).  Still to make up for it they offered the 30% off which was still great to get a PI for $25 shipped next day.  They rarely go on discount unless you happen to live close to a Microcenter.  ANd they are very useful, I have 4 or 5 of them and can still think of many more uses.  Media streaming and retro-arcade are just two of the most popular applications.  It is a basic Linux computer, too.  Think more low power PC than microcontroller.  For that, you can just get an Arduino.

I have a lot of Pi2s, all working well, two for TV,Game simulator(FC,Nintendo ETC.) one for personal website, hard drive server & VPN, but If it supports Gigabit NIC will be much better.

Just received shipping confirmation, thanks again!

Can you use Remix OS on this?
