Raspberry introduced the Pi 400 - a computer in a keyboard

Raspberry unveiled the Pi 400. This is the familiar Pi 4 ultra-compact computer housed in a keyboard case.

“User friendliness is more than performance, it’s also a form factor. In particular, having fewer items on your desk makes work easier. Classic home computers – BBC Micros, ZX Spectrums, Commodore Amigas, and others – have integrated the motherboard right into the keyboard. There is no separate system unit and case, no keyboard cable. Just a computer, power supply, monitor cable, and (sometimes) mouse”.
