Unboxing the Raspberry Pi 400

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:48, 23/8/2022 |
 
I was lucky enough to win a Raspberry Pi 400 in the raffle at the Wakefield Show. So I thought we could unbox it together and see what it is like....

My machine has its own special cover (it was from RISC OS Open)

 
Inside which we find standard box listing the impressive machine spec

 
Side by side

 
Opening the box reveals a keyboard

 
which provides a case for the machine 

 
and easy access to all the ports and connections. Nice to have the SD card so accessible for quick switch to another OS.

 
Impressive weight for a solid piece of kit

 
And already ready to go when we plug it in.

 
What are your experiences of the Raspberry Pi machines?

Using a Crow Pi L. The first RISC OS laptop I've had since the A4 big smile Still need to use a mouse as the inbuilt touchpad is not the best (and of course a cable connection to the internet - hopefully wifi support is on the way for RISC OS).
