Tiny is it all? The Raspberry Pi 400 , an ARM-based computer with everything you need for office, study, programming and creation tasks, is embedded entirely in a compact keyboard. You just need to connect a mouse and an external screen, you can also use a TV, and that’s it – you can start working.
The Pi series of computers was originally intended to be an easy, cheap and available solution for basic computing needs, but the Pi 400 is the first that really does not require any prior knowledge of software or hardware in order to use it. The hardware specifications are very similar to those of the Pi 4, with a 1.8 GHz quad-core ARM processor, 4 GB of working memory, WiFi connections, local area network and Bluetooth connectivity, and a pair of microHDMI connections for external monitors – including support for two monitors in parallel.
The compact computer also includes four USB connections: two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, and a USB-C connection that is also used to supply power to the computer. There is also a microSD card slot, and a GPIO expansion slot. The operating system is Linux, although of course in principle any other operating system that supports the chipset can be installed on the computer.
The manufacturer is expecting a particularly wide audience of potential buyers this time: from parents who buy their children’s first computer, through students looking for a cheap computer to study from home, to giant companies that will choose to equip employees in service centers in compact computer units. The price of the computer in the countries is $ 70, and it can also be purchased in a package that also includes a mouse, power supply, HDMI cable and microSD card for $ 100.
