Raspberry Pi 400.
« on: February 15, 2021, 04:52:47 AM »
I just ordered off of Amazon a Raspberry Pi 400 kit and can't wait to get my hands on one. I gathered they just got on the market not that long ago because I looked them up when I first read about this in a copy of Maximum PC around the end of last year, and couldn't find any for sale anywhere at that time.

Should be something fun to play around with. The kit comes with the pie 4 computer built into a keyboard, an official Pi mouse, power supply, Micro HDMI to HDMI cable, 16Gb Micro SD card with Pie OS, and official Pi Beginners Guide.

They came out sometime in November and they look oh so awesome :o :drool: :like:

Congrats on getting one :like: The Pi's are getting better and better :like: I used one as a desktop at home for a month last year, back when my main desktops ssd blew up :oops: :D I was using a Pi 4 but that Pi 400 would have been even better I think :ahhh mainly because of the big heat sink that is built in that can be overclocked :cheers:

Looks great :like: Have you got to use it any yet?  :cheers:

I think in the next several years these will get a big following because of the price and the power you actually get from them :salute: A perfect computer for web browsing at home :like:

I'm interested in the 4k playback abilities, using my PC with Nordvpn and chromecasting to our 4K tv, and sometimes the chromecast side struggles with normal HD and stutters, and I'd rather not use my power hungry PC all the time to push streaming video to the TV...

Unfortunately some regional stuff prevents us from using the firetv with apps even using the nordvpn app. (we can't install apps because of the region of the firetv stick) and yes, I realize that my old Firetv isn't 4K, that was a happy surprise bonus when we moved into our new place.
