Raspberry Pi enthusiast Jeff Geerling has carried out a comprehensive 20 minute boxing and review of the new Raspberry Pi keyboard PC which was launched earlier this week. Powered by a Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.8GHz processor supported by 4GB of RAM, the Raspberry Pi 400 is a powerful, easy-to-use computer built into a neat and portable keyboard.
Other features of the Pi 400 PC include wireless connectivity, dual-display output, and 4K video playback, as well as a 40-pin GPIO header. The GPIO pins remain accessible, so if you want to explore beyond the desktop, you can connect components and prototype your projects.
The Raspberry Pi 400 has specially designed thermals to keep your computer cool and silent while under use.You can also check out Jeff Geerling teardown of the new 400 Raspberry Pi keyboard PC which reveals the inner workings and layout of the PCB. UK and US English keyboard variants of the Raspberry Pi 400 are available in Spanish, French, German, and Italian variants, with more to come.
