Following the announcement of the new Raspberry Pi 4, creative design company, pi-top is proud to reveal that its new flagship product, the pi-top [4], will be the first product of its class to be powered by the world-class computer.

The Raspberry Pi 4 is a massive advancement with large increases in both power and speed, allowing users to do more than ever before with up to 4GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM. With the revolutionary Raspberry Pi 4 at its core, the pi-top [4] unlocks a world of designing, coding and making.

The pi-top [4] is a go-anywhere computer that offers a new world of possibilities for makers, creators and innovators. Each unit serves as an entire computing ecosystem, with impressive compatibility through gigabit ethernet, dual micro HDMI for two 4K screen displays, two USB 3 ports and one USB 2 port for connecting devices and peripherals.

What you choose to do with your device is entirely up to you. pi-top [4] users can shoot video on the fly with a camera rig, edit footage and mix their own music, all with a single device. It can be the beating heart of complex Internet of Things (IOT) projects with rapid information transfer or serve as the brain of a robot that can recognise you when you walk into a room.

“Quite simply, the Raspberry Pi 4 makes pi-top [4] the most powerful and connected tool available to creators. 

Just as affordable technology allowed musicians to create platinum-selling records from their bedroom in the 1980s, pi-top [4] will catalyse new creations from rockstar inventors.”

Raspberry Pi Founder and CEO Eben Upton adds:

“There are areas of endeavour that pi-top has been involved in, particularly around displays, keyboards, batteries and the like which we haven’t explored. It’s been wonderful to see an organisation do that, take on those challenges and vanquish them.”

pi-top is comprised of a global team of industrial designers, engineers and learning theorists who have designed, manufactured and shipped more than 250,000 units. Now, pioneering a unique form-factor,
the company is redefining how people use computers to impact the world around them.

pi-top co-founder & CEO Jesse Lozano says:

“pi-top is a company of makers, we started out as a pair of founders messing about with a Raspberry Pi 3D printed laptop in my bedroom and that’s still the
essence of everything we do. Now with pi-top [4] we’re putting powerful new technology in the hands of makers everywhere.”
