Where I come from we have some of the best pies shops. With any good pie, the sum of ingredients are crucial - defining its delicious characteristics. Raspberry Pi however, is not made in a bakery. Far from it - its a new computer project created by UK-based charity, The Raspberry Pi Foundation. Selling their products under the Raspberry Pi name since 2011, the group has developed a following among enthusiasts and students for its offering of capable and extremely affordable computers designed to be adapted for all tastes.
With any good pie you need great ingredients to make the filling, otherwise it can be very unsavoury. The Raspberry Pi 400 ingredients just so happen to be very indulgent, as the new device packs a full computer into a keyboard. Specs include a quad-core 1.8GHz Broadcom processor, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port (both USB-A) as well as two micro-HDMI ports for connecting a display (with support for outputting in 4K).
Now lets talk crust: a very sleek and slimline keyboard design which has a microSD card slot located on the back, coupled with a horizontal 40-pin GPIO header for connecting accessories. The keyboard computer supports Bluetooth 5.0, as well as dual-band Wi-Fi up to 802.11ac. Power is provided by USB-C - rounding off a juicy, sumptuous pie tempting anyone who happens to pass by it in the shop window.
You'll always pay a good price for a good pie, which is why Raspberry Pi is offering the Pi 400 as either a standalone product for $70 or as part of a $100 kit. The latter includes the Pi 400, a 16GB microSD card preprogrammed with Raspberry Pi OS, a mouse and power supply, a micro-HDMI to HDMI cable and a beginner's guide - for irresistible Pi indulgence.
Stick a fork in this deal, whilst it's still piping hot!
