Raspberry has launched the Pi 400 this week, boasting a “complete personal computer built into a compact keyboard”. Featuring a Raspberry Pi 4 inside, the Pi 400 features similar specifications with a uniquely designed cooling solution to prevent throttling while users get their work done.
Perfectly suited to use as an “educational tool for students of all ages”, the Pi 400 is cheap, portable, and great for home-study and learning computing concepts such as programming, physical computing, and networking.
The Raspberry Pi OS installed in the SD card works for plenty of tasks, like editing documents, scheduling, learning to code, and social media. The Raspberry Pi OS is officially supported by Raspberry, ensuring that users get the best performance from their Pi 400 computers.
The Raspberry Pi 400’s Pi4 features a quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) SoC from Broadcom, 4GB of RAM (LPDDR4-3200), dual-display output, wireless connectivity (2.4GHz and 5.0GHz), 40-pin GPIO header, and supports 4K video playback. Other connectivity options include 2x USB-A 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, a USB-C power port, a gigabit ethernet port, Bluetooth 5.0 and 2x micro HDMI ports.
This computer is sold as a kit which includes a mouse, the power supply, a micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and an SD card preloaded with Raspberry Pi OS. The keyboard is currently available with UK, US, Spanish, French, German, and Italian layouts, but more will come in the future.
The Raspberry Pi 400 is available now, starting at £67/$70/€76 for the unit only.
