One of the first products to sport a brand-spanking-new Raspberry Pi 4 is the pi-top [4], a new flagship product by pi-top, a "creative learning" company based in London. The pi-top [4] is described as a "go-anywhere computer" with relatively powerful hardware for creators and makers to leverage in a variety of ways.

"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 catalyze new creations from rockstar inventors," said Graham Brown-Martin, chief education and product officer at pi-top.

A Raspberry Pi 4 is at the heart of the pi-top [4]. That means its underbelly consists of a 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 processor. This is paired with 4GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM. It also offers 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

Out of the box, the pi-top [4] can connect to standard peripherals, such as a PC monitor, USB keyboard, and mouse. That means you don't have to buy new stuff to use the thing. At the same time, pi-top also offers a compatible wireless keyboard and HD touch display for use with the pi-top [4].

The entire contraption is not very big. it has a built-in battery and is sturdy. It can shoot video on the fly with a camera rig, or serve as the "beating heart" of a complex Internet of Things (IoT) gadget.

"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," said Jesse Lozano, pi-top co-founder and CEO.

The two things pi-top did not announce including availability and pricing. In the meantime, you can head over to company's website and drop your name and email to be notified when the pi-top [4] is ready to ship.
