A whole computer contained in a keyboard – just connect it to a monitor and you are ready to go. It is not a new idea, rather 80s idea. But it is one of the best moments in computer industries. Raspberry Pi 400 is the right product at the right time. Here is why:
Computer manufacturers are just competing on power and they were totally ignoring that people general people did not need more power they needed some price cut and convenience. RaspberryPi added to the line in 2012 and since then they were walking the opposite way of other computer manufacturers. Their computers were small, low power consuming, very cheap but a little slow to compete with the other desktop computers until 2019 when they came with a the latest version of raspberry computer board, raspberry pi 4 B with 2-8 gigabyte of ram and enough power to satisfy the needs of general usages.
Right Time for Raspberry Pi:
Raspberry pi 4 became so popular among the tech savvy people and a lot of units were sold which are generally used for small servers, DIY projects, robotics, and machine learning projects. But connecting all the wires still seemed a little nerdy to normal people who are not tech savvy.
At the same time, people are forced to work from home, because of Covid-19 pandemic so a lot of people needed a computer unit which is affordable and powerful enough to run office works and browsing.
Then came Raspberry Pi 400:
Yes it is just a keyboard unit which will sit on your desk with no wire tangling on your desk. You add your monitor or TV or whatever you can afford.
You are ready to work from home, browsing internet, encouraging your child to learn programming, and a lot more.
