Since out last update, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a new iteration of its single-board computer. We've updated our list to include the latest kits that include the Raspberry Pi 4, namely the CanaKit Starter and the Vilros Basic Starter.
The Raspberry Pi 4 is quite a step up from its precursor, the Model 3B+. Apart from having several RAM options, topping out at 4 gigabytes, it also has an improved CPU and supports 4K video. In the connectivity department, the Raspberry Pi 4 uses the new Bluetooth 5 standard, which is more energy-efficient than previous versions.
Because the Raspberry Pi 4 hasn't yet been fully integrated into most kits on the market, our list is still populated by packages that come with the previous generation of this technology, which still has a range of uses, especially for more passive applications, such as home security and network monitoring.
