The British company Raspberry Pi Foundation, famous for its miniature single-board computers, has announced the release of a new product. She developed a full-fledged desktop computer, made in the form of a regular keyboard, called Raspberry Pi 400.
Raspberry Pi 400 looks almost indistinguishable from a regular keyboard. The only thing that immediately catches your eye is the abundance of connectors and ports. Among them are two micro-HDMI, each of which can output content in up to 4K at 60 Hz, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, USB Type-C for power, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, as well as a microSD card slot and a GPIO connector for connecting different niche devices.
According to its characteristics, the Raspberry Pi 400 is almost a complete copy of the Raspberry Pi 4 . The computer is powered by a quad-core ARM processor with Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, slightly more than the Pi 4's 1.5GHz, and 4GB of RAM. It is possible to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
Depending on the region, the computer can be equipped with 78 or 79 keys on the keyboard. The layout and button arrangement is similar to that found on most laptops.
The Raspberry Pi 400 developers hope that the new product will be popular not only among people who want to learn how to program, but also in the corporate sector. For example, it can be used by call center employees by connecting two monitors at the same time.
The base price of the Raspberry Pi 400 for a single computer is $70. A set with a branded mouse, power supply, microSD card, HDMI cable and a guide for novice users will cost $100.
