The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the Raspberry Pi 400, a compact keyboard with an ARM-based computer built-in. Just plug it into a TV or monitor using one of its two micro HDMI ports, insert a microSD card, attach a power cord and mouse, and you’ve got yourself a basic computer for day-to-day tasks, coding, or media playback.

The Raspberry Pi 400 costs just $70, and that’s if you don’t want all the bells and whistles. But the $100 option is an even better option, as the bundle packs everything you need to get your Raspberry Pi computer going as soon as you open the box. Aside from the PC-in-keyboard computer, you also get a mouse, a USB-C power supply, an SD card that runs the Raspberry Pi OS, and a micro HDMI to HDMI cable that you’ll need to hook up the PC to a monitor or TV. The latest edition of the Raspberry Pi Beginner’s Guide is also included in the $100 package.
