One of Best Buy's deals of the day includes a unique offer that combines the Raspberry Pi 4 and a CanaKit case for a total fo $54.98 (taking $7.50 off each one once you add both to your cart). Without this offer, the two items would be around $70 separately. Amazon (opens in new tab) has similar bundles that include the Raspberry Pi 4 and CanaKit case, but those go for around $99 or more. They do include a few extras but not enough to make up for Best Buy's sale.

The Raspberry Pi is an open platform computer that can be used for any number of things. Android Central has some of the more popular examples of things you can do, including setting it up for retro gaming or a smart camera.

Since the Raspberry Pi 4 is a sort of do-it-yourself computer, you're going to want a few accessories like an SD card. There are also a few other possibilities that Android Central has a roundup for, including some unique ideas like a night vision camera.

The Raspberry Pi 4 includes a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB LPDDR4 SDRAM, a USB-C connection for power supply, and the ability to support multiple monitors. You'll also get USB 3.0, Bluetooth 5.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. It also has a set of three heat sinks to help keep it cool while operating. It's covered by a one-year warranty.

The CanaKit case works specifically with the Raspberry Pi 4 and retains access to all of its ports and connectors. It's designed to be durable with a high-gloss finish.
