Reminds me of those all in one commodore pc’s back in the 80’s?
Oooooohhwww so sweet
I’d like it more if it had HDMI instead of micro-HDMI. But it is cool.
Looks interesting. I have a pie 3+ here with libreelec.I really like pie its cheap and you can do a lot things with it.
Here is the BBC’s take on it:
An aspect of the price point that didn’t occur to me…
And - it beats the (*&^% out of a Chromebook! Most people (if they look/ask around) can locate a cheap monitor - I know if someone was sourcing them here I could spare a couple - ex-TVs even…
Like it! I think I will buy one when it comes to Sweden!
next step is adding a lid with a screen and a battery
The Raspberry Pi 400 is available starting today. The $100 kit is available now in the UK, US, and France, with availability in Italy, Germany, and Spain following next week. Meanwhile, the $70 standalone version is available now in the UK, US, France, and Germany, and it’s coming to Italy and Spain next week. Releases in India, Australia, and New Zealand will follow by the end of the year.
The only issue that comes to mind is the keyboard layout. Don’t know if they provide any solution to that.
Edit: found this in the same article:
At launch, there are six different keyboard layouts — UK, US, German, French, Italian, and Spanish — and Upton tells me there are additional variants for the Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese, and Japanese markets on the way soon.
I wished they offered the 8GB RAM option as well.
That’s what’s stopping me for now - I love the idea, but I don’t see squeezing back to 4GB any time soon…
WANT ONE <3
Seriously, though, I grew up on the Spectravideo 328 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SV-328 , ( with a whopping 64KB RAM!!! ) which was the competition to the Commodore 64, and ran Microsoft Extended Basic, which is where I learned to code. Sprites going everywhere, Othello, snake-like games. Fun days.
Only French Azerty… guess I won’t be buying one…
FR Azerty is a p.i.t.a to use if you’re used to BE Azerty (and vice-versa probably)
You can buy it from the UK store, but I guess you’re after the Swedish keyboard layout. At least I am.
If it was available I would’ve ordered one as a kitchen computer right now.
Yup, I got a soft spot for Pi’s.
My laptop is running EnOS/KDE Plasma with 4GB without any issues although it’s gonna get another 4GB soon. Desktop is 8GB though. As far as that Pi machine goes a window manager with Linux sounds pretty sweet. Openbox/Fluxbox/i3 etc?
I checked with Ameridroid, my usual supplier for SBCs, and amazon and haven’t found any available yet. My Raspberry Pi 4b 4GB SBC with the 64 bit OS and 5.9.x kernel with EndeavourOS XFCE or Budgie runs very well. The only problem being a pulse audio problem which I have solved using VLC.
It will be interesting to see how the faster CPU clock and much faster RAM will perform, and Maaaybe fix the audio problem.
Are you running audio direct to ALSA with VLC? Faster CPU and RAM is of course good.
Correct. Bypassing pulse audio eliminates the audio skipping that isn’t constant, but more than frequent enough to be irritating. One other user here does not have the skipping problem on his RPi4b. I have board revision Rev 1.2, perhaps he has Rev 1.1? Either that or I just have a bad PRi4.
Hmm…Pulse often proves to be too many links in a chain but not always the problem. Perhaps PM that other user? There’s (nearly) always a solution unless you just got unlucky with the hardware. Perhaps a fix for the audio issue might be forthcoming. Is it it worth filing a bug report, or is it too DIY for that?
