The latest addition to the Raspberry Pi foundation looks like a Commodore 64. Called Raspberry Pi 400, this mini-computer is completely integrated into a compact format keyboard (28,6 x 12,2 x 2,3 cm). Once plugged into the mains and connected to a screen, it is ready to perform various tasks such as surfing the web, doing office work or playing videos.
Having a chipset similar to that of the Raspberry 4, it also has a quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processor, but clocked at a higher frequency of 1,8 GHz (compared to 1,5 GHz for the Raspberry 4), and relies on 4 GB of LPDDR4-3200 RAM. Devoid of fans, its heat dissipation is ensured in particular by a metal plate placed between the keyboard and the components. In addition to Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connections, it offers on its rear edge two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, one Gigabit Ethernet port, two micro-HDMI outputs, one microSD card reader, one GPIO connector of 40 pins to interface it with various compatible peripherals and a USB-C socket for power supply.
It can already be ordered in Spain with an Azerty-type keyboard at a price of €74,50, with delivery expected within two to three weeks. It is also sold as a complete kit for €106,50 including a mouse, power cable, HDMI cable, 16 GB microSD card with Raspberry Pi OS pre-installed and a user guide. With this inexpensive ready-to-use mini-computer, the Raspberry Pi Foundation hopes to attract many users, especially in the educational world.
