The $70 Raspberry Pi 400 is a computer crammed into a keyboard
Last year, the Raspberry Pi 4 hit the market, promising all the essential guts that make up a surprisingly powerful computer for just $35. Add a $5 case and you have a basic computer—with USB ports, up to 4 GB RAM, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi for less than you spent on election night pizza. But diving into Raspberry Pi’s DIY-driven, hacker-friendly world can still be intimidating. Now, however, the company has released a $70 complete computer package based on the Raspberry Pi 4 and the whole thing fits inside a rather normal-looking keyboard.
But, even if you’re not into hacking, the 400 is still an interesting machine. For $100, you get an entire kit, which includes a power supply, an HDMI cable, a mouse, and a user’s guide for getting started. It’s not meant to be a main computer, but it could be useful for people looking for a basic way to access word processing software for distraction-free writing.
