The New Raspberry Pi 400 Is A $70 PC Built Inside A Keyboard


Raspberry Pi’s are quite popular for their ability to be used as single-board computers (SBC) in various AI/ML projects whilst not being too heavy on your pocket. A wide selection of I/O ports alongside GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins allows you to attach essentials like a camera module, a sense hat, etc. for your projects.

Raspberry Pi 400 is the company’s latest addition, inspired by classic PCs and a complete personal computer built into a keyboard. At its heart, it’s still a Raspberry Pi 4.

Raspberry Pi 400 was built keeping user-friendliness in mind, which can sometimes be more important than performance. The main idea is to reduce the clutter on your desk and help you focus more on work.

Raspberry Pi 400: Specifications

The specifications are same as the 4GB Raspberry Pi 4:

  • Broadcom BCM2711, 4 x ARM Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 1.8GHz
