New Raspberry Pi - The 400. Fastest Yet. Oh and it's in a keyboard.

Summary

Its the fastest Pi yet, with a 1.8ghz processor.

It comes in just the 4gb variant (the pi 4 comes in 2, 4 and 馃槑

It's inside a keyboard

My thoughts

Well I did not see this coming. Who says "Oh聽I love the pi but wouldn't it be great if it was INSIDE the keyboard". Having said that, it makes my desk a whole lot cleaner.

its just a pi 4 in a keyboard and a bit higher clock

if it was useful give it a like :)聽btw if your into linux pay a visit here聽 and i will be thankful if you send me an opinion here聽聽

Well, there's also a big chunk of aluminium coupled to the CPU acting as a very big heatsink. That's a useful addition, even if nothing ground-breaking.

Did you mean to reply to someone else? I didn't say anything about the RPi's specs.

it's an interesting concept, i suppose the gpio header location would allow for "commodore style expansion cartridges", and the newer chip would finally mean we can go past 2GHz on a pi...

what's also interesting, is that the new compute module has that same newer chip, so for the people who dont feel much for the keyboard, the compute module has baisctly the same performance advantages.

I can see this being useful for educational stuff but other than that, I don't really get the point.

Just get a regular Pi and you will have far more flexibility.

Well it's also an option as "my first computer" for kids.

While a normal Pi would also be a solid option for this, this one is faster and still nicely priced.

I think its pretty cool, for about 拢100 you get everything you need. Comes with the keyboard/pi combo (computer), power brick, mini HDMI to HDMI cable, mouse, 16GB memory card, even a programming guide.

Also the 16GB SD card has a OS already installed. this one requires no setup or knowledge to get started.

It's cool, I just don't understand the point really. You still need a monitor and they are so small you can just use a wireless keyboard/mouse and tape it to the back of your monitor out of sight.

2 脳 micro HDMI ports (supports up to 4Kp60)

I'd have preferred 1x full size HDMI. I'm not sure I'd have a use for two monitors on a Pi, in many cases 0 monitors is enough. But when I need it, I do聽not聽want to deal with the Connector from Hell, nor with the Adapters of the Apocalypse聽needed for the most likely full HDMI cables I'd plug there...

Many people complain about micro-USB being fragile, but micro-HDMI is the only connector I had to be completely finicky from first use (mostly because no micro-HDMI cable, and the micro-HDMI connector just can't sustain the weight of the Adapters of the Apocalypse).

Would need to figure out a decent mounting system for it for the use case I have.

Only have a 2GB pi4 at present.聽聽 Won't be useful in a stacked multi-pi scenario (could be done for laughs I guess)

Got to have a 3d printer聽though. 聽And be able to use it, at which point other possibilities for a pi become viable. 聽A $100 it鈥檚 gud鈥檔uff computer is a low end consumer item, not a 鈥渨ell I鈥檒l just warm up my 3d printer and fix that鈥 item.

I agree with the assessment. 聽Those asinine ports are not for 90% of buyers
