This morning we’re getting our first glance at the new Raspberry Pi 4. The latest rendition of the popular microcomputer delivers upgraded specs, more I/O, and 4K support that makes it arguably the most powerful release to date. It will stay at the same $35 starting price as the previous-generation model, but with a bevy of notable upgrades for power users and tinkers alike. Raspberry Pi 4 offers a handful of configurations, headlined by a 4GB configuration which should be able to handle most everyday tasks like web browsing and email. If true, this means that Raspberry Pi 4 goes beyond a niche piece of tech to a piece of technology that could bring the internet and more to the masses with previously unseen affordability.

expiredSet up HomeBridge, RetroPie, more w/ a CanaKit Raspberry Pi Starter Kit: $70 (Reg. $90, today only)

Today only, Woot is offering the CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 B+ 32GB Ultimate Starter Kit for $69.99 Prime shipped. Non-Prime members will pay an additional $6 for delivery. That’s $20 off the going rate found at retailers like Amazon, is a match for our last mention, and one of the best prices we have tracked. After sitting on the fence for quite some time, I finally broke down and bought a Raspberry Pi about a year ago. I must say, it’s been a blast to tinker with and it’s thrilling to see what can be accomplished with such an inexpensive computer. It can be used to give smart devices HomeKit abilities with HomeBridge, provide a full-blown retro gaming experience, or even make an existing speaker AirPlay-compatible. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
