The Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based charity developing low-cost, high-performance computers, introduces its latest design with the Raspberry Pi 4. The Raspberry Pi 4 is a dual display-compatible desktop computer that serves as a smart home hub and media center. The first new version of Raspberry Pi since 2016, it is also the first edition that can truly replace your desktop.
Priced at just $35, the new Raspberry Pi boasts a USB-C power supply, micro HDMI ports, USB 2, USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, and your choice of RAM ranging from 1 GB to 4GB, all running on a version of the Linux operating system. Additionally, you can utilize Raspberry Pi 4 for your old projects as an upgrade, as Raspberry’s software remains backwards-compatible. Anything you create on Raspberry Pi 4 will work on older models.
Raspberry points out that the Raspberry Pi 4 is designed to offer a complete desktop experience. You can conveniently edit documents, draft a presentation, create spreadsheets, and browse the web, all while running two monitors simultaneously in 4K. Furthermore, the energy-efficient Raspberry Pi 4 runs silently and uses considerably less power than most other computers.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has sold approximately 27 million Pi devices to date, including six million in 2018 alone. Their mission is to provide people all across the globe with the power of computing and digital technologies for work and play.
