Heads up that this kit includes a Raspberry Pi 3 and not a Pi 4. At least that is what the pictures and reviews say.

Other than the heat issue, there is nothing wrong with it, right?! I bought a RPi4 with heatsink and fan and it has been good so far. Significantly faster than my RPi2B.

I believe the Kano OS can be downloaded for free: http://dev.kano.me/public/, but for the price and keyboard it's not bad: just not that Red Hot

Yup Raspberry Pi 3B according to the manufacturer, these kits have been around for a while.

The touchscreen kit looks more fun for kids, don't see any sales currently though.

While it's only a Raspberry Pi 3b, I bought it anyways, if my kid gets bored of it, it will be a retro pie with a free wireless keyboard/trackpad :)

Its a good one, my kid started off with one and she enjoyed the game like interface if the os. Now she moved to windows and the rpi has been repurposed.

Thanks for the link, nice that they made the software free for people who already own Raspberry Pi.

You can run it in vbox as well, so do you need a Pi3?

We don't need 99% of the stuff in this forum ;) Buy good deal, think later.
