Raspberry Pi 400 - Complete Kit - US Layout

Featuring a quad-core 64-bit processor, wireless networking, dual-display output and 4K video playback,
Raspberry Pi 400 is a complete personal computer, built into a compact keyboard.
Inside is a modified Pi4-4GB mated to a huge heat sink for excellent passive cooling! All I/O connectors are along the back of the keyboard, including GPIO.

Raspberry Pi 400 is ideal for surfing the web, creating and editing documents, watching videos, and learning to program using the Raspberry Pi OS desktop environment.
It's also an outstanding value as it includes the Pi4 and keyboard that also functions as a case.
Includes

Raspberry Pi400 integrated keyboard/Pi4-4GB
16GB microSD card, pre-programmed with Raspberry Pi OS
Raspberry Pi power supply
Raspberry Pi mouse
Micro-HDMI to HDMI-A cable, 1 m white
Official Raspberry Pi Beginner's Guide (English language)

not sure why they didn't bother integrating their raspberry compute module system into this product. hopefully the next iteration will adopt it.

Neat and compact form factor, but too slow IMO ...

Too slow for what... what were you expecting it to do ?

I'd say for most use cases for a rasp. pi it works well.

This reminds me of TV with built-in VCR.

Cost.

2 PCBs, plus they'd have needed a keyboard -> USB bridge (they keyboard ribbon cable plugs right into this PCB).

We're dealing with a VERY tight BOM margin here.

And honestly: what advantage for typical users would there have been? Sure, you could have swapped for a newer module in the future, but how many users of this thing would ACTUALLY have done that?

Sorry, but your answer doesn't make sense.

It's a Pi. People using a Pi are expecting a Pi. This unit is clocked slightly faster then the SBC Pi's, so it's actually faster.

For me the best use of this thing is developing Pi based solutions. It's a perfect form factor for quick HW and SW development. Once you've got everything locked down you move to the actual Pi board you want to deploy in.

i.e. tinkering with a HAT.

Not really a complete computer. No display...

This has the same processing power as a cheap Chromebook, without the display, without a battery, and an SDCARD is not reliable data storage. You'll want an SSD with an enclosure to plugin to this.

Raspberry pi's are cool and powerful devices. But if you are looking for a cheap PC, this is probably not what you want.

Your response doesn't make sense - see why below.

This unit is faster than a stock Pi 4, but all of them can be overclocked to 2GHz - How to overclock to 2GHz

This unit was designed to be a desktop computer - not really meant for development.

1. The GPIO pins are on the back - not easily accessible.
2. i doubt your HAT would fit on the GPIO - you'll need to probably buy a ribbon cable extension or something.

Good Luck with your unit ...
