Raspberry Pi 400 – The personal computer reinvented
Strengthening Raspberry Pi’s reach into desktop computing, today sees the launch of the Raspberry Pi 400.
Having become the best-selling UK computer company, and with over 30 million Raspberry Pi boards having been sold in its 8 year success story, the Raspberry Pi 400 represents a major new step; being the first Raspberry Pi product not to be delivered as a bare-board component.
Containing all of the computing power that the growing community of Raspberry Pi enthusiasts have come to expect integrated into a convenient, ready-to-go super-compact keyboard housing, the Raspberry Pi 400 looks set to win over a new range of users. To get you started, the new product comes in a kit bundles with a Raspberry Pi mouse, power supply, SD card and HDMI cable for connecting to a display.
The Raspberry Pi 400 marks a significant new milestone. Already the UK’s biggest-selling computer company, this reinforces Raspberry Pi’s position as one of the most important and interesting computing businesses in the world. The KD team are, once again, delighted to have supported and collaborated with Raspberry Pi on the design, engineering and development of this landmark product.

Taking the Keyboard & Hub launched last year as a starting point, KD worked with the Raspberry Pi team to develop the design, squeezing the circuit board underneath the keyboard assembly along with a bespoke designed fanless cooling system, providing silent and effective thermal management of the Raspberry Pi 400’s computing power.
The rear panel boasts an array of connectors, including a gigabit ethernet network socket, 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, UCB-C power, 2 x micro HDMI sockets, a micro SD card slot and Raspberry Pi’s trademark 40-pin GPIO header.
As of 8am today, you can now get your hands on the Pi 400 in both the Raspberry Pi’s Cambridge store and online here. All images courtesy of Raspberry Pi ©.
