Raspberry Pi 400 ... including keyboard. Integrated computer

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the launch of the Raspberry Pi 400, an ARM-based integrated computer keyboard.

Simply use one of the two (micro-HDMI) ports to connect the product to a TV or monitor, insert a (micro-SD) card, then connect the power cord and mouse. So you have a basic computer for daily tasks, programming or media playback.

The product can be purchased as a standalone device for $ 70 or as a package with a mouse, power adapter, 16GB microSD card for OS, data storage, cables for HDMI, and a beginner guide for $ 100.

The appearance of the Raspberry Pi 400 product reminds me of early home computers like BBC Micro or ZX Spectrum. It is not an accident.

Although Raspberry Pi's microcomputers have become popular with hobbyists, their core is designed as an accessible computer that children can use to learn to program.

Except for the keyboard and shape, the Raspberry Pi 400 is very similar to the Raspberry Pi 4 released last year.

The organization has equipped the computers with a quad-core processor (Broadcom BCM2711) with a frequency of 1.8 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth low energy and wireless networks.

There are two (USB 3.0) ports, (USB 2.0) ports, and two (Micro-HDMI) ports so that you can connect two 4K displays.

Power is supplied via USB-C port. In addition to the GPIO ports for connecting several private peripherals, there is also a microSD card slot for storage.

Depending on the region, the computer can be integrated into a keyboard with 78 or 79 keys. There are six different keyboard layouts: UK, US, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.

Other samples from the market will soon follow in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal and Japan.

It works on Linux and is great for people who want to learn to code, but Linux can create obstacles for many Windows and Mac users looking for simple hardware for everyday computing.
