You can do so much with a Raspberry Pi. Yes, you. This little PC board was designed with education in mind. It's easy to learn, relatively simple to master, and extremely powerful when used to control things like a smart home or robot. Best of all, they're incredibly inexpensive.

You'll find kits for every level of skill and our staff pick — the CanaKit Raspberry Pi 4 Basic Kit — is perfect for most people who aren't quite sure where to start. Like the Pi itself, it was designed as a STEM tool for kids that have an interest in building a PC and programming. But it features many necessary accessories to get started with Raspberry Pi.

Those who want to bump things up a notch will want to check out the Raspberry Pi 400 computer kit. This is the all-in-one computer that you've been looking for, with the Raspberry Pi 4 already installed in the case. The case doubles as a keyboard and offers (mostly) easy access to all of the ports at the top, so you can plug in the best Raspberry Pi screen, along with your favorite mouse.
