The Raspberry Pi 4 represents a giant leap forward, not only for the Raspberry Pi, but for single-board computing. For the first time, itís realistic to use your Pi as a secondary or backup PC (or perhaps a kidsí first PC). However, the larger real benefit will come not from folks who use Raspberry Pi 4s in lieu of x86 PCs, but from all the innovators who harness the systemís enhanced performance, I/O and graphics to create new iOT devices, media servers and robots. Kids building Pi projects in school will also have a world of new learning possibilities.

If you need a Raspberry Pi computer today, though, youíll have to live with some issues that are likely to get resolved in the near future via software updates. Key apps like Retropie just canít run on the Raspberry Pi 4 and video playback performance is disappointing. While itís certain that major applications will be ported to the new computer, we still donít know exactly how good video playback will get once the operating system is refined over time.


It seems there's no new price for the new model.

Thanks for that bromerzz, no price change then.

So 35 quid (plus keyboard & mouse) and you've got a setup that will do everything 99% (I'd guess) of home computer users need.

Got mine today delivered from 'The Pi Shop'. Cost £54. Add on the heat sink, power supply, mini HDMI cable and postage and it's about £90 to £100.

Bought everything from 'The PiHut'.
Also added the aluminium heatsink case. This is a metal clamp arrangement that hold the Pi inside it. Having had problems with summer heat over the years thought this was a necessary addition.
The Pi 4 is stated to run hot anyway so heat dissipation is a consideration, and there is also a heatsink with built in fans.

After several days light use running Kodi the Raspberry Pi 4 does get very warm. I would certainly recommend a heat sink or fan assisted case. The PiHut have just released a plastic case with built in 5 volt fan, and there is also the aluminium heat sink with fan.
