Today a new board has been announced by Raspberry PI Foundation.

It is quite different from previous ones because it integrates keyboard and Raspberry PI into a single device able to create a complete desktop computer with a monitor.

It has been named Raspberry PI 400.

I really like it because remembers to me my beloved Commodore 64!

This will be sold both as complete kit (with a mouse, power supply, micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and SD card preloaded with Raspberry Pi OS) as well as standalone device.

Raspberry Pi 400 incorporates a board based on Raspberry Pi 4, with some design addictional technical measures to improve thermals to keep this device cool and silent.

The same 40-PINS GPIO is designed to be exposed on back of keyboard.
