Raspberry Pi 400 is the latest and greatest addition to the amazing range of Raspberry Pi products. Pi 400 has the same chipset as Raspberry Pi 4 Model B except it's built into a keyboard. The design of the Pi 400 computer is such that a large piece of metal mounted on top of the BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC provides the rigidity as well as it works as a giant heatsink. This allows for the better thermal performance and thus the clock rate has been bumped up to 1.8GHz compared to 1.5 GHz of the Raspberry Pi 4 range. This gives us a good performance boost on Raspberry Pi 400.
At the back of the keyboard form factor, we can most of the ports we are used to with the standard Raspberry Pi boards. There are 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 2 port, 2x micro HDMI ports for Dual 4K monitor support, 1x Gigabit Ethernet port, a microSD card slot, USB Type C Power port and good old 40-pin GPIO pins for all kinds of amazing add-ons.
Raspberry Pi 400 is excellent for home/school use. It comes with 4GB RAM all the accessories of the Pi 4 are compatible with it. Also for the first time ever and finally, we get an On/Off switch for turning the Pi on or off built on to the keyboard. Yay!
This is a US type Keyboard, the same layout one we are used to here in India. On the middle of the keyboard, we have a numeric keypad accessible on holding a Fn key which is super convenient while maintaining a compact form factor.
