    Bought as a gift but I have multiple Raspberry Pis. Great gift or hobby project for home media delivery, retro gaming or if you just need something to browse the web and watch some videos on.

    Super impressed with the quality and feel of the keyboard. I really was expecting something far lighter and flomsy, but it’s on par with some decent Laptop keyboards.

    I’m currently working through the book and it’s great. Always wanted to try coding for beginners and there’s an app called scratch that my son uses at school that does this very versatile little computer.

    Great little computer, comes with Raspbian on a SD card, easy to start up.

    Simply insert a USB-C cable (yes, the kind you have to charge your phone), HDMI connector and SD card and you’re off!

    Speed wise it’s OK, if you want to surf or code you’ll be fine. I use it to code in a Linux environment.

    For entertainment, I found Kodi to run quite sluggishly on it (in Raspbian, not from boot mind you), but that might just be the build I installed. If you need more speed, you can easily overclock this Pi to 2.1 Ghz – and the cooling fan that’s built in is definitely up to the job.

    Purchased to use as an HTPC as the two set top boxes I purchased and subsequently returned were poor. The Pi400 runs libreelec flawlessly and with a quick swap of the sd card provides a very versatile learning machine. Highly recommended.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersIf you have a kid, get it. Remember your ZX Spectrum or Amstrad CPC, this is the modern equivalent sort of. It’s not a games machine but it can be, however it can do most things a regular computer can except playing video is not it’s strong point, however most kids do that on their phones anyway.

    You can do almost anything a regular computer can at a great price but there’s a limit to what the processor can do for that price, video stretches it a bit too far. However you can code and become a maker and plug electronic circuits directly in or link it up to a Pi Pico or Arduino and do even more.

    It’s neat, everything’s in the one box, ready to go. Just plug it into a tv with an HDMI port.

    Adults can use this too of course and if you want to do your word processing and spreadsheets the included software is free and Microsoft office compatible. You can set it up to run lots of retro games from all the famous old computers and consoles too. It will happily browse the internet but some sites can feel just a little sluggish.

    Great for a kid, great for an adult that wants to muck around with electronics or programming, thousands of compatible add one for this, it really is like the glory days of the old computers just brought up to the modern day.

    Pro: good and lasting cheap solution for the children to learn Linux and coding. Easy to swap the MicroSD towards the need of my children.

    Con. Non really. I run more then 6 pi’s in the house and love them!

    These are fantastic, you can do so much with them , run the latest Linux distorts , emulate old computers ( Amiga , Atari St, c64 and many more) you can run a lot of retro games machine emulators too ( Megadrive, SNES, master system , nes , pc engine , a lot of others too), if you are looking at one of these to do any of what I have mentioned , GET ONE!, you won’t regret it , add an Xbox 360 controller and you are set for a great time

    Fantastic kit to encourage an enquiring mind. Something a bit different from gaming but educational too.
    Previously purchased one 8 years ago for eldest son who went on to use it as part of A level computer project!

    This is very good for those that want a cheap pc, has all the usual features based on Debian Linux and not Microsoft or any of those other systems. Has a fundamental training package for starting to learn various types of hardware and programming including the latest versions of scratch and python. If you want to train at a higher level you will have get that book elsewhere, but you will be able to use that knowledge on this product. Would recommend.
