DESCRIPTION

A lot of fun squeeezed into a tiny computer! Everything you need to to get started with the Raspberry Pi 4!

Protect your Pi from bumps and bruises in our slick Pibow case, add a heat sink to improve thermal performance, then learn how to code the Blinkt! rainbow light that comes with your kit, using the Python programming language. You can even make a (SQUEE!) rainbow animation with it!

Just pop the pre-imaged micro-SD card into your Pi, plug in all the bits, and away you go! After you've installed our Blinkt! software (it's super simple) you'll learn how to code it with Python.

There's a sheet of 11 fun and colourful (and peel-able off-able) stickers to personalise your Pibow case, and even a name sticker.

Your new desktop computer

The speed and performance of the new Raspberry Pi 4 is a step up from earlier models. For the first time, we've built a complete desktop experience. Whether you're editing documents, browsing the web with a bunch of tabs open, juggling spreadsheets or drafting a presentation, you'll find the experience smooth and very recognisable — but on a smaller, more energy-efficient and much more cost-effective machine. 

 

THE PACKAGE INCLUDES

  • Raspberry Pi 4 (1GB RAM)
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Pibow case
  • OS with Minecraft and Scratch (on microSD card)
  • Blinkt! with 8 rainbow lights
  • HDMI display cable and micro-HDMI adaptor
  • Heat sink
  • Worldwide USB-C power supply
  • Sticker sheet with 11 stickers

*just add a monitor or TV as a display. Take a look here!!!

FEATURES

Desktop-level performance

The faster 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU on the Raspberry Pi 4's Cortex A72 SoC, coupled with the up to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM give performance comparable to entry-level x86 desktop PCs. You'll see significantly faster boot speeds, and much better performance for CPU-heavy tasks like emulation and media centre usage; much snappier all round!

The Raspberry Pi 4 moves to USB-C power meaning that you'll need a new USB-C power supply that can supply 5V at 3A. We've got a whole range of power supply options

Significantly faster IO

The Raspberry Pi 4 has two USB 3.0 ports, for up to 10x faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0, perfect for connecting fast peripherals like SSDs and flash drives. There are also two USB 2.0 ports for connecting less speed-dependent peripherals like keyboards and mice.

The ethernet jack on the Raspberry Pi 4 moves to true gigabit speed, for super-speedy wired networking and, as with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, there's Power-over-Ethernet capability too (requires additional Raspberry Pi PoE HAT ).

4K display support, dual micro-HDMI

There are dual micro-HDMI ports that support up to 4Kp60, to use your Raspberry Pi 4 with much larger displays with crisp, sharp, high resolution. Use the H.265 4Kp60 hardware decoding to watch 4K movies in your favourite media centre distro.

For the first time, you'll be able to use dual HDMI displays with the Raspberry Pi. This is great for working on a bunch of different tasks at the same time without having to work in tiny windows.

If you need a micro-HDMI adapter to use your existing HDMI cable with the Raspberry Pi 4 then we've got you covered !

Bluetooth 5.0 and wireless LAN

The shift to Bluetooth 5.0 (from 4.2 on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+) means you'll get twice the speed (2 Mbit/s) and four times the range (50m outdoors, 10m indoors) that you did with the previous generation. You'll get better power efficiency compared with Bluetooth 4.2 also.

There's dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, like the previous generation Raspberry Pi, for quick wireless networking with less interference and better reception.
