About this deal

Digging into the benchmark results a little further tells us a bit more about this Pi’s capabilities. For the image editing tests, which are designed to measure a device’s ability to handle multiple sequential workloads on a single core, it scored just two points – that’s compared to a score of five for the Pi 4. The video editing test was the most successful, with a score of 42, while a result of 26 for the multitasking test is creditable. Thank you for such a great review. My 12 yr old son wants to get into programming and hosting a server. Can this do that? It seems nice to already have a keyboard so I was thinking this might be better than the standalone Raspberry Pi 4. Thank you for the great content! Wish I had been able to watch your linked videos sooner, looks like you covered it in the tear-down video as well. :) You can switch video drivers to get the most out of the VideoCore VI GPU. Enabling the GL (Fake KMS) desktop driver using the raspi-config tool in Raspberry Pi OS improved performance in the HardInfo GPU Drawing benchmark improved from 1523 to 1602. Raspberry Pi OS

And for those of you in Denmark, RaspberryPi.dk can ship you a Danish Raspberry Pi 400 too. Let me see them ALL Yes, it can be used for video conferencing, with most any USB video camera (I tested a Logitech, but there are many that people have tested and are working). Not that you need convincing, but here are some of the unique features of the Raspberry Pi 400 that you need in your life: It’s a PC in a keyboard That issue is still fixed on the Pi 400. It uses the same power circuit (as far as I can tell) as the newer revision Pi 4.To get it open, I used a plexiglass cutter, which is the only tool I have that's thin enough to get into the side clips that hold the white keyboard top to the red plastic shell underneath, but also rigid enough to un-pop the snaps. After working my way around the board, I could separate the keyboard top from the bottom half: Looking at the bottom, there aren't any screws or other fasteners, and the only difference from the regular keyboard is the inclusion of some vents and larger rubber feet. In some ways, the Pi is a victim of its own success here; it’s so close to being acceptably powerful for day-to-day use that the few odd stumbles it does run into feel all the more frustrating in contrast. That said, this is the closest a Raspberry Pi has come to desktop levels of horsepower. We wouldn’t be surprised to find similar scores in an entry-level Windows system – so we’re very surprised to find them here. Raspberry Pi 400 review: Ports and features Is it too early to ask at this time if you can load iRaspbian or any other Apple-like OS to the 400?

For use as a simple desktop replacement and for educational purposes I would give the Pi 400 5 stars. The Raspberry Pi 400 offers a range of different ports that will cater to your needs. From LAN to USB 3.0, 40 pin GPIO to MicroHDMI, whatever you need to plug in, the Pi 400 has it! Getting Started with your Raspberry Pi 400 It would be nice to have internal eMMC or M.2 suppport. I cross my fingers and hope a future "Pi 500" might have that :) Great write up, thank you. I'm keen to see how it lasts heat-wise, over the. My 4b is awful sensitive to heatsink design/fit. The Raspberry Pi 400 has two USB 3.0 ports, for up to 10x faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0, perfect for connecting fast peripherals like SSDs and flash drives. There is also one USB 2.0 ports ideal for connecting less speed-dependent peripherals like a mouse.

Performance

You get Gigabit Ethernet, USB and two USB3 ports, two mini HDMI outputs and a microSD card slot. There’s USB-C for delivering power, too. Both HDMI ports support 4K displays, although you can only run a single display at 60Hz; if you connect two displays, they both run at 30Hz. As with all things Raspberry Pi, you're not going to get Apple-level hardware (no chamfered aluminium edges, diamond-blasted surfaces, stainless steel bands, etc.), but at least for the model I received, the plastic molds seemed to produce high-quality parts, and everything fit together (and survived four separate complete teardown-rebuild cycles!) very well. Great news. After seeing it, I was surprized nobody tried to come up with such a design earlier, and it didn't occur to me either.

The familiar 40-pin GPIO pins are located at the rear of the keyboard for wiring up electronics projects, alongside two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port. There's even an on/off power option via the F10 key (for full power disconnection, grab a USB-C on/off switch cable). I'm hoping someone designs an STL file that I can print that'll replace the bottom plastic case with a version that has a bit more vertical space that can hold a small ssd drive adapter with it's USB-C adapter pointing rearward so I can just loop the cable to the USB3 port. I'm frankly surprised that no one has done that yet. An internal ssd would make the Pi400 much more useful to me. With an even faster 1.8GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU (thanks to the substantial heatsink inside), coupled with the 4GB of RAM give performance comparable to entry-level x86 desktop PCs. You'll see significantly faster boot speeds, and much better performance for CPU-heavy tasks like emulation and media centre usage; much snappier all round!Internally, the Pi 400 is basically an upgraded Raspberry Pi Model 4 computer. Rather than squeezing that board into a keyboard case, this computer has been built from scratch to be an all-in-one. For starters, that means that all of the ports are lined up at the rear of the computer, rather than being spread around the side.
