The Raspberry Pi was one of the greatest things to happen to the gadget space in years. The concept gets no simpler than an ARM-based computer, but the amazing flexibility it provides, as well as its compact size (no bigger than a credit card), has managed to make it the go-to choice for the guts of different projects in many different areas. We’ve seen it run a handful of operating systems so far and be the center front of several projects, but the project was already due for an update. Said update is already here. The Raspberry Pi 4, the next generation of the Pi, has now been announced.

The biggest improvement of the new Raspberry Pi 4, when compared to older models, comes in the CPU. The new model comes with a CPU much more capable than that of its predecessor, and able to deliver what the Raspberry Pi team calls a “full desktop experience” that’s actually usable for day-to-day tasks. It also comes with support for dual 4K displays, which is a first. And the overall footprint of the device has not changed a bit, and it is backward-compatible, which means that you can just get the new Raspberry Pi 4, load your current software into it, and place it into your project.

Pricing is also familiar. The Raspberry Pi 4 starts at $35 for the 1GB RAM model, and this time around, it goes all the way up to 4GB RAM, which should prove plenty for most projects. All in all, it looks to be a decent successor to the current Raspberry Pi 3, and we can’t wait to see what amazing projects come out of this. The device is now available, so go ahead and get building with it! Buy it now.
