New Raspberry Pi 400 Is A Complete PC In A Keyboard

We’ve been following Raspberry Pi since they arrived on the scene in 2012. Their brand of barebones ULPCs (Ultra Low cost PC) have become remarkable popular over the last 8 years. Their latest model, the Raspberry Pi 400, is a departure from the typical circuit board computer. It is essentially a full PC built into a keyboard. The ports – including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB type C (for power), Ethernet, SD card, micro HDMI, and GPIO – are on the back of the keyboard. Tech specs include a Broadcomm BCM2711 chipset running at 1.8 GHz, 4 GB DDR4 RAM, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 5. It is sold as a $100 kit that includes the PC/keyboard, a power supply, a HDMI cable, an SD card loaded with Raspian Linux, a USB mouse, and a user’s guide. It can also be purchased without all the accessories for $70.
