While the Raspberry Pi series of computers aren’t always known to be the most powerful, they are pretty small and relatively self-contained, making them ideal for DIY projects that need to be powered by a computer. However, it looks like The Foundation is taking Raspberry Pi to the next level with the Raspberry Pi 400.
This is a keyboard that comes with a Raspberry Pi built inside of it. This means that if you wanted to use it as a computer, you’d just need to connect a display to it and you could be pretty much set. The best part is that this Raspberry Pi 400 keyboard/computer is priced at just $70, making it a rather affordable way to break into the DIY scene.
The device comes with a quad-core Broadcom BCM2711 processor under the hood and is accompanied by 4GB of RAM, supports dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, Gigabit Ethernet, and also comes with three USB ports, two micro HDMI ports, and a GPIO header and a microSD card slot for the operating system and additional data storage.
Like we said, Raspberry Pi devices aren’t exactly known to be high-end so don’t expect too much from it, but if you’re looking for a very, very affordable computer, this could be something worth taking a look into.
