The Raspberry Pi Foundation has just launched its new product, the Raspberry Pi 400, a UK technology firm specializing in miniature computers. It was made up of a small keyboard that only costs $70, a compact personal computer.
The latest concept is largely based on developing a Single-Board Raspberry Pi 4 (SBC) computer, typically requires hooking it up to a keyboard, monitor, and mouse. A few cables, a monitor, and a mouse are needed with the Raspberry Pi 400 to provide a simple machine for starting programming, browse the web, and enjoy 4 K media streaming.
Complete PC with a Faster Pi 4 in a keyboard
The new Raspberry Pi 400 is a single-board computer, but much faster, runs cooler, and is built into a small keyboard. As previously mentioned, it is a full personal computer that can be connected to and be seen on a desktop or TV. All you have to do is connect a monitor with a micro HDMI port, insert a storage microSD card, attach a power cord and mouse, and get a simple device for day-to-day activities or media playback.
The Raspberry Pi 400 is very similar to the Raspberry Pi 4 last year concerning the requirements. The ARM-based quad-core CPU has a slightly more powerful 1.8GHz Cortex-A72, up from 1.5GHz at a Pi-4. There is 4 GB RAM, which is used for storage using microSD cards.
In terms of networking, the USB C port contains two micro HDMI ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and one USB 2.0 Capacity, and also a MicroSD slot. It supports Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet.
The Raspberry Pi 400 is only for $70, but you can buy the whole package of accessories for $100. At the end of the year, the device will be available in the market.
However, the Raspberry Pi 400 is not a hardware hacking device. “There are no user-serviceable inside Raspberry Pi 400, and opening the device could destroy the product and invalidate the warranty,” as described by Raspberry Pi in the user manual.
