Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the launch of the Pi 400 — a complete PC within a keyboard aimed at getting users up and running without much hassle. The Raspberry Pi 400 is much similar to the Pi 4 in terms of specs but comes with a slightly faster CPU. The Pi 400 is available as a standalone keyboard-PC for US$70 or as a PC desktop kit with all accessories for US$100.

The Raspberry Pi is a popular modular computer among DIYers, programmers, tinkerers, and even among those who just need some basic PC functionality. Now, more than eight years after the original Pi had launched, Raspberry is offering the Pi 400 — a full fledged PC built into a 78-key keyboard starting at US$70.

Raspberry's earlier launch was the Pi 4 last June, which was just a PCB to which peripherals and displays would be connected to. With people increasingly using the Pi for homework and studies, Raspberry has come up with a more intuitive solution for less-technical users that bundles the Pi into a keyboard. Users just need to connect their displays and peripherals to the ports directly on the keyboard and are good to go.

The Pi 400 is essentially a faster Pi 4 with the same Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 SoC albeit clocked slightly higher at 1.8 GHz. It comes with 4 GB of LPDDR4-3200 RAM, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and the usual assortment of USB, HDMI, and GPIO connectivity. There's a microSD card slot as well. The Pi 400 supports OpenGL 3.0 graphics, H.265 4K60 decode, and H.264 1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode.

The Raspberry Pi 400 starts from US$70. For this price, you get the keyboard-PC without any accessories or peripherals. You also have the option of buying a full-fledged Raspberry Pi 400 Personal Computer Kit for US$100. The Pi 400 PC kit includes, apart from the Pi 400 computer, Raspberry's official USB-C mouse, official USB-C power supply, an SD card with Raspberry Pi OS pre-installed, a micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and the official Raspberry Pi Beginner's Guide.

The Raspberry Pi 400 can be ordered right now from participating resellers, a list of which can be selected here. Raspberry has confirmed that the Pi 400 will be in production until at least January 2026. The Raspberry Pi Desktop Kits will also continue to be available for those who need more configuration choices.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
