Hackers and Tinkerers Rejoice! Raspberry Pi 4 is released and the new specs do not disappoint! The new model features dual mini-HDMI ports, Bluetooth 5 connectivity, gigabit Ethernet, integrated WiFi module, and a few options for RAM.
The Raspberry Pi 4 outputs enough power that it could serve as your every day computer. It has enough horsepower to handle spreadsheets, web browsing, and document creating. Canakit will be offering a desktop kit later this august for $120.
