Raspberry Pi 400: The inside story of how the $70 Pi-powered PC was made #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
ZDNet has a fun article on the journey to create the latest Pi 400.
But while the look of the Raspberry Pi 400 might be a reminder of the past, the components are far more up to date; a Raspberry Pi 4 computer with 4GB of RAM encased in a keyboard with ports to connect a mouse, display, power, add-ons, and Ethernet, plus dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It’s also about 40 times more powerful that the original Raspberry Pi, and the company says that level of power offers an experience that is indistinguishable from a legacy PC “for the majority of users”.
