How to Build a Raspberry Pi Game Boy and Where to Buy a Kit
Want your own Raspberry Pi-powered Game Boy, a handheld portable retro games console you can take anywhere?
Many options are available, from adapting an existing case to sticking your Raspberry Pi in a 3D printed Nintendo Game Boy.
Read on to learn everything about building your own Raspberry Pi Game Boy and building your own from a kit.
Which Raspberry Pi Model Should You Use for a Game Boy Case?
Almost all Raspberry Pi models can be used for a Game Boy style project. However, they each have their advantages and disadvantages
- Raspberry Pi A: lower CPU speed and RAM, and fewer USB ports, the Pi A models should do the job, but most cases aren't suitable.
- Raspberry Pi B/B+: from the original Pi B through to the Raspberry Pi 4, the B board is most suited to emulation. The fastest option, B boards also have more connectivity options.
- Raspberry Pi Zero: compact, but slower, and lacking USB connectivity without an adapter. Various Raspberry Pi Game Boy projects are based around the Pi Zero. Given how affordable the board is, it's your best option if you're new to Raspberry Pi.
While other hobbyist PCBs can be used in a Gameboy-style handheld gaming system, the Raspberry Pi is the most suitable.
Additional Hardware for a Raspberry Pi Game Boy
You'll need more than just a Raspberry Pi for a Game Boy-style project.
- PiGRRL 2 PCB: this device lets you control your Pi and games
- PiTFT Display: a 320x240 pixel 2.8-inch TFT resistive touchscreen
- PowerBoost 1000 charger
- Lithium Polymer battery
- Rubber buttons
- Audio amplifier: the Adafruit PAM8302 is a good option
- Mini speaker
- Optional 3D printed Game Boy(or Game Boy Advance) style case
- An assortment of switches and buttons, depending on the Game Boy case you choose
- Suitable stranded wires
You should also have a soldering iron, wire cutters, and a microSD card with RetroPie (a retro gaming suite) installed.
Is Retro Gaming Legal?
You may be aware of some confusion around retro gaming, specifically with the acquisition of ROMs. These are essentially disk images of cartridges, cassettes, disks, and other game media from classic systems. The thing is, if you don't own the original version, you can't legally use the ROM.
So, take the time to use retro games you already own, or buy them on eBay or a flea market.
Three Ways to Build a Raspberry Pi Game Boy
What is the best way to build a Game Boy handheld with a Raspberry Pi? You have three main options, each of varying complexity.
- Adapt an existing Game Boy
- 3D print a Game Boy case
- Buy a Raspberry Pi Game Boy kit
Let's look at some of the best Raspberry Pi game console builds you can carry in your pocket.
1. Revive an Old Game Boy With Raspberry Pi
If you've got an old Game Boy cluttering up a drawer, it makes sense to rely on the original case. While you won't be able to use the internals, there is enough space inside to hold the Pi. You might even adapt a spare, unused, or 3D printed cartridge case for a Pi Zero to sit in.
You should also find room for the display, and controller PCB. For an authentic feel, keep the original buttons.
The video above demonstrates using an old Game Boy case, while retaining all the original interior hardware. If you're fond of the original device, this is the route to take.
2. 3D Print Your Raspberry Pi Game Boy
Fancy 3D printing a case? If you're struggling to fit a Raspberry Pi in your old Game Boy without making customizations try a custom-built case. This project from Adafruit shows you what you need to do and where to slot the various circuits.
The end result is a modern, 3D printed version of the Game Boy, powered by a Raspberry Pi.
You'll find the STL files for 3D printing on this dedicated Thingiverse page.
3. Find a Raspberry Pi Game Boy Kit
Want to avoid the potentially expensive mistakes of buying the wrong components, or a3D printed case that doesn't fit?
The solution is a Gameboy kit for your Raspberry Pi. Consisting all the necessary parts you should be up and running within 90 minutes. Your Raspberry Pi Gameboy will then be ready to use.
Raspberry Pi Zero Game Boy: EZ-GBZ DIY Kit
There's a good chance that all you want is a kit to easily assemble and play classic games. If so, why not try the EZ-GBZ kit, which provides a Game Boy-like PCB, all the controls, speaker, and display. All you need to do is connect your Raspberry Pi Zero (or Raspberry Pi Model A board) to the GPIO.
Moments later, you'll have a great looking Nintendo Game Boy in your hand, powered by your Pi Zero.
Pre-Assembled Shortcut: Gameboy Zero
Don't fancy building a project from scratch or from a kit and just want to play? The Gameboy Zero on Etsy is the ideal solution, offering a choice of colored and clear cases.
Various configuration options are available when ordering, from standard Game Boy buttons to purple SNES buttons. Powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero, this is as authentic a Game Boy experience you'll get without booting up an original.
A Game Boy Kit Without the Raspberry Pi
Finally, if you want a great modular Game Boy-like retro gaming experience but aren't too bothered about the Raspberry Pi, consider the Gameshell from Clockwork.
A modular device that even includes a HDMI-out port, this is a great little device particularly suited to Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, NES, and MAME games. Other platforms can be set up and the device features the PICO8 game kit for building your own titles. You can even run Kodi on the Gameshell!
Want to know more? Check our review of the Gameshell.
Play Retro Games Anywhere on Your Raspberry Pi Game Boy
Fancy a pocket-sized Raspberry Pi-powered Game Boy-like games console? By now you should have a good idea of the best option. You can adapt an old Gameboy, 3D print a case, or buy a Raspberry Pi Game Boy kit.
Whatever path you take, the result should be a games console you can carry in your pocket and play anywhere. You might limit your choice to Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles. Alternatively, you might embrace the full library of retro games available to you. That'll certainly keep you busy!
As noted, you'll need to use a retro gaming suite to get your Game Boy-like Raspberry Pi running. While RetroPie is an option, there is a lot more to retro gaming on the Raspberry Pi.

3D printing for retrogaming
Rasmushauschild’ Super Pi Boy – Raspberry Pi 3 Game Boy is a favourite among retrogaming enthusiasts.
The super Pi Boy is a 3D printed Gameboy that packs a punch: a Raspberry Pi3 as a computer module , a Linux based OS and a full color TFT display.
Powered by a lithium battery it runs Retropie, a custom raspbian distribution optimized and outfitted for the sole purpose of retrogaming.
Rasmushauschild describes it as:
It’s built around the Raspberry Pi 3 single board computer, making it a seriously powerful device!
It runs Retropie which provides a wide variety of emulators, all the way from the first Atari console to the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and everything in between!
Since at FABtotum we all love the Raspberry Pi (The FABtotum personal fabricator /core uses one to run the FABUI!) and retrogaming, once we saw we could 3D print most of the components it was only logical that we started this DIY project in the spare time.
3D printing the shell
The super raspi boy is made out of two separate shells, that were 3d printed using FABtotum PLA and the Print head PRO using the FABtotum Core Multipurpose 3D printer.
The shell , resembling a 1989 Nintendo Gameboy, has been modified to add a few buttons not present in the original version, useful for navigating the emulator menus, pausing ,etc.
These bottons, also 3D printed, sits upon digital switches directly placed under the front shell.
Printing all these components is pretty straightforward, provided buttons are sliced with a skirt to increase adhesion.
Once the shells are printed each component is placed inside and soldered together following the schematics.
The biggest part of soldering was connecting all the digital switches to the GPIO ports. Not a complex task but delicate and trivial, especially when the space for cable management was restricted.
The GPIO pins are connected to each and every switch in order to read the digital inputs.
Soldering everything with the 2 3D printed case halves side by side is the best option, as the folded cables add up fast and the shortest they are the better.
The screen required a small modification in order to be powered correctly and the battery was a little bit too big for the enclosure (an extra 2mm needed to be squeezed in) but everything worked out fine.
After a couple of hours, once assembly was complete ,we tested the whole assembly first by checking the power was charging the battery and then firing up Retropie from the SD card.
After a successfull login (A monitor and a keyboard or a SSH terminal is a must) we set up the GPIO ports using the Adafruit retrogame script (you can find it here).
After every button was working along with the battery and audio it was time to put everything together with screws.
TimoG‘ Super Pi Boy from Twitter
The final result is a dream come true for every kid from the 80’s: a portable emulation platform that condenses around 20 years of gaming from the first ZX spectrums to the N64.
The sheer amount of fun (and nostalgia) potentially condensed in this kind of projects is mind boggling!
If you have the time to print out the parts and willing to buy the components needed this is definitely one of the coolest DIY projects in gaming.
A shout out to Rasmushauschild for making this available to everyone (you can reach him via email here).
A thanks also to TimoG that shareds his own Super Pi boy made with his FABtotum 3D printer (on the left).

12 Raspberry Pi projects for your 3D printer
Perhaps there is no better gadget for your DIY projects than a 3D printer. With a device capable of assembling every case, frame, bracket and more, this is an essential part of the kit.
Likewise, the Raspberry Pi is also a vital tool in the tech wizard's arsenal, suitable for everything from home media centers and smart home control. to launch into space!
So what happens when you put these two DIY staples together? Let's take a look at these 12 Raspberry Pi designs that are available for 3D printing.
Game Projects for Raspberry Pi
PiGrrl Nintendo Game Boy Clone
Perhaps one of the most popular uses for the Raspberry Pi is as a retro gaming hub and this project takes the idea a step further by focusing emulation on one platform and creating suitable case.
PiGrrl is, of course, a Nintendo Game Boy clone developed by LadyAda and you can find the full set of instructions on the Adafruit website, which also includes links to any additional hardware you may need. This build uses a cannibalized Nintendo game controller, but there are alternatives to this. We are particularly impressed with the quality of the Game Boy-esque 3D printed case.
Super Game Pi, Game Boy Advance Clone
Still in clone territory, Adafruit also released instructions for what they call the Super Game Pi, which is essentially a clone of the 2001 handheld Game Boy Advance.
3D printer file contains more buttons than PiGrrl, but again relies on a cannibalized SNES controller. Just as fun as PiGrrl, it also has a larger screen.
Another great 3D printer project for your Raspberry Pi, based on the Pi Zero, the design can be downloaded from Thingverse.
While there are no formal details online for this build, it appears to require a small display and a compact controller, though you might prefer to just add a dummy set of controls and connect a USB or Bluetooth controller to the Pi Zero as a USB. The port remains open for this assembly.
Google Glass with your Raspberry Pi
Want to know all the facts and figures about every place you visit? Google Glass may have taken a backseat now, will be back, but it's a project that can be combined with a Raspberry Pi as the brain, with a 3D printer providing a home for the display, complete with a clip to attach it to glasses!
The 3D print file for your own Google Class replica can be found on Thingiverse, while the display is probably the most important component, in this case cannibalized from a pair of immersive TV glasses.
We're not saying you won't get the same level of turmoil and ridicule as Google Glass, but it's worth it!
Raspberry Pi Laptops
You may know that Pi Top started life as a project for 3D printed laptops for Raspberry Pi devices before a successful Kickstarter campaign brought them commercial success - but it's not the only Raspberry Pi laptop.
Not quite a laptop like the Pi Top, the Pi-To-Go is nonetheless an impressive project with a small flip-out display and keyboard thanks to this project file from Thingiverse.
See it in action here.
The bottom of the Pi-To-Go is filled with batteries removed from an old Dell Latitude D600 laptop battery, and behind the screen is a pirated 64GB SSD card.
This looks like a great project to try; see full guide for details.
Raspberry Pi Desktop Cases
We've already told you how the Raspberry Pi can be used as a desktop computer. so it makes sense to create a desktop case for your little computer.
PiBook ( 3D printed file ) is a Raspberry Pi in the form of a desktop computer, with a base unit and a display located on top.
Despite the name, the PiBook doesn't look like a book (it looks like an Apple Lisa, anyway), but it should still satisfy your need to stick a Raspberry Pi into what you just typed.
3D Printable Raspberry Pi Tablets
Several designs for Raspberry Pi tablets are in circulation. This is from Adafruit, the file is ready to be downloaded to your Thingverse 3D printer.
The CAD-designed case houses a Raspberry Pi A+ with a 3.5-inch TFT display. The example in the video may not have a touch screen, but there are several versions of TFT with capacitive overlays available.
For a more standard Raspberry Pi tablet of a usable size, this next Adafruit project uses a Pi 2 (or possibly a Pi 3) and you can download the 3D printed case file from Thingverse.
Amazing 3D Printed Raspberry Pi 9 cases0009
Finally, we're going to take a look at some of the excellent Raspberry Pi cases that can be 3D printed. This is a huge area, so feel free to go out and look for what you think will suit your project or mood. You may notice some of them along the way...
This excellent Raspberry Pi case is clearly inspired by the classic Nintendo entertainment system and even has a door that allows access to the Pi's SD card right where the cartridge slot would be.
This is what it looks like in action!
Not bad, we think you will agree. For more retro love, check out the Amiga 3000 and PiStation One case too, and maybe consider bundling them with the RetroPie gaming distribution.
It's Happened: Raspberry Pie
We're sure you'll already be drooling over this amazing looking 3D Raspberry Pi case, which of course literally interprets (well, almost) the name of the device.
Want an absolutely literal interpretation? Think 3.141 6 ...
Raspberries are everywhere
While we're talking "literal interpretations", we can drop the "pi" and focus on "raspberries". The Very Berry Pi Case 3000 is one of the most stunning Raspberry Pi cases we've ever seen, and while larger than most, it has plenty of room to insert cables and cards.
Boys Fallout Pip-Boy
While a lot of 3D printing work, this project - which will also require a portable power source for your Raspberry Pi - looks great, and if you're a fan of the Fallout or just want to take your Pi with you wherever you go Come on, this seems to be the perfect case. Make sure you have enabled the touch display!
For more video game fun, check out this Halo case.
Raspberry Pi 3D Printed Case Compatible
While we're talking about 3D Raspberry Pi cases, it's worth considering that differences between different models mean that not all cases will fit. So, when considering a Raspberry Pi case for your 3D printer, check if the case matches your Pi's port and LED position.
Raspberry Pi and 3D printing projects go together like raspberries and cream, and as you've seen, the possibilities are quite significant. Have you used a 3D printer in one of your Raspberry Pi projects? Do you have a 3D case? Tell us all about it in the comments and share your favorite projects.

Here we see "using raspberry pi"
What is raspberry pi?The
Raspberry Pi can be an inexpensive, credit card-sized computer that connects to a computer monitor or TV and uses a regular keyboard and mouse. However, it is a low-end device that allows people of all ages to learn about computing and learn how to program. in languages like Scratch and Python. It's capable of doing everything you'd expect from a personal computer, from web browsing and HD video playback to spreadsheet creation, word processing and gaming.
What's more, the Raspberry Pi has the ability to interact with the surface world and has been used in many digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and Twitter birdhouses with infrared cameras. So we'd like to find out how kids around the world are using the Raspberry Pi for programming and understanding how computers work.
What models of Raspberry Pi have been released?
There are many generations of the Raspberry Pi line, from Pi 1 to 4 and even Pi 400. Typically, most generations had Model A and Model B. Model A was a less expensive option and had less RAM and fewer ports (such like USB and Ethernet). The Pi Zero could be a spin-off from the first generation (Pi 1), made even smaller and cheaper. Here's the lineup so far:
- Pi 1 Model B (2012)
- Pi 1 Model A (2013)
- Pi 1 Model B+ (2014)
- Pi 1 Model A+ (2014)
- Pi 2 Model B (2015) 9013 Pi Zero (2015)
- Pi 3 Model B (2016)
- Pi Zero W (2017)
- Pi 3 Model B+ (2018)
- Pi 3 Model A+ (2019)
- Pi 4 Model A (2019) )
- Pi 4 Model B (2020)
- Pi 400 (2021)
20 Best Uses for Raspberry Pi
1.Incredibly Mini Mac
Long before Steve Jobs and Jony Ive started causing premature chest embolisms to product designers at any other tech company, Apple products (like any other computer company, to be honest) were clumsy beasts wrapped in gray plastic cases of banality. But they were pioneers.
Paying homage to the clumsy pioneers of yesteryear, programmer Jannis Hermanns built the first Mac out of LEGO, a Raspberry Pi and an e-reader after a very inspiring LEGO session with his son. It must have been a stormy day if the Wi-Fi went down too.
2. Lego Rubik's Cube Collector
Reddit creator Francesco Georg, Reddit creator Francesco Georg successfully combined two original customizable consumer products, using Lego and a Raspberry Pi to overcome one of the most frustrating consumer products in history, the Rubik's Cube.
Georg's creation can solve a Rubik's cube in about 90 seconds, not as fast as some machines and even some people, but they are not made of Lego.
3. Bitcoin mining machine
Bitcoin has gained a nasty reputation since its launch in 2008, but it has many advantages over traditional currencies, mainly because there are not too many fat people bathing in Bitcoin and laughing maniacally in Bitcoin.
Getting ahead in the bitcoin game is often achieved through mining, which requires some math, so forget it. Luckily, your Raspberry Pi is here to save a lot of you, especially the Raspberry Pi 2.
The Raspberry Pi 2 has a large amount of RAM and high processing power that can run resource-intensive mining software such as BFGMiner, possibly with a "modular ASIC/FPGA with monitoring and remote interface functions." Once installed, users can start mining and can even plug in more Raspberry Pi for faster speeds.
4. Lock up your daughters (and other family members)
Turning 21 should be part of the time-honored tradition of getting the “key to the house” — sort of like getting the keys to the city, but where your only accomplishment is not moving out to 21 years old.
However, these days it's unlikely that most people will be gone by age 35, so what's the best way to upgrade tradition to the digital age and secure your home with a Raspberry Pi?
The Hacker House team has figured out how to upgrade your home so that you can enter it with a smartphone, which, you will agree, is much more difficult to lose than your house keys, given that it is practically glued to our hands anyway, and, which is even better without it. had to dismantle the walls to perform.
5. Wireless Printer
Although printers have been consistently improved every year, they are still almost universally subject to exactly the same errors as they were in 1989: paper jammed, printer unable to connect to computer, or ink, apparently disappeared. reliable, it is clear that you would like to stay with him.
Instead of shelling out for a replacement that just might work, the Raspberry Pi can turn your old printer into a wireless printer so you can keep up with the bright neighbors printing in the other room.
If digital technology putting most analog technology out of business isn't enough, you can also kick it until it works using Oliver Mattos and Oscar Weigl's Raspberry Pi mix.
This device turns your Raspberry Pi into an FM transmitter capable of operating in the 7.5-107.9 MHz band. However, you may need to find a frequency that is not already in use or you risk interference with licensed broadcasters.
3D printing is the most significant technological innovation since the iPod, if the iPod cost almost as much as a car for most people. Unfortunately, the technology may take another couple of years before it becomes truly affordable. However don't let that stop you from scanning all the items you'll print when they get there.
For this project, instructables.com user the_anykey used 40 Pis and 40 cameras (although he emphasizes that this could be much less), as well as 40 8 GB SD cards and, unfortunately, only one power.
Cameras are designed to capture everything at once and then create a complete image of something that might be harder to convince to stay put with a single camera, like a child or a drunken fight. Once scanned, the 3D image is rendered and prepared for multiple geniuses to form a 3D printer from a Raspberry Pi (hint).
8. Home cinema
Few things are more like fatherhood than guessing puns, embarrassing daughters, and building home theaters. who.
Unfortunately, few people can afford the latest bathtub-sized TVs and related equipment. Jamie McCain, however, has figured out how to not only live big with the state of the art, but do it in a way that is both comfortable and in particular, cheaper than a family car.
For generations of mice sneaking into homes for crumbs, falling into a trap almost certainly meant a death sentence, either at the hands of a sadistic cat quenching their thirst for blood or under the bars of a brutal spring-powered trap. Even with the advent of humane mouse traps left alone to believe in what they did, not knowing if you'll ever remember seeing it again.
This invention of the Raspberry Pi by Alain Mauer offers a harmless alternative for mice. A working sort of common humane trap makes an image of the mouse trapped inside and sends you an email to notify you to release it back, preferably from a distance.
10. Voice controlled coffee machine
Without coffee, most people would hardly be human. And since verbal and motor skills are a priority in the morning, Developer Garden and Oracle have done a service to humanity by allowing you to invite coffee without having to give your name to the offended barista, who spells it wrong anyway.
Developer Garden teamed up with Oracle to hack a Nespresso coffee machine to run via voice control using only a Raspberry Pi and a smartphone.
One of the most popular uses for the Raspberry Pi has been as a smart mirror, giving the most selfish generation in history yet another reason to admire their looks.
Mirror, wall mirror; which one is the neatest? Michael Thieves created his smart mirror by attaching a mirror glaze to a flat black display and drawing white text into the background to display the clock, weather, calendar and news feed via Raspberry Pi.
12. Pet feeder
Having a pet is one of the few joys in life that doesn't need technology to make it satisfying, but that doesn't mean you can't get them involved anyway, whether it's buying an iPad, because that you have money to spare than make sense or, more sensibly, follow creator David Bryan to make an automatic pet feeder.
David uses his feeder to regulate what his cat eats so she doesn't gain weight when she's not, but more likely it can also be a habit to confirm that you're not accidentally starving her.
13. R2DT Robot
Long before Lucas stopped resisting the urge to ruin his reputation, R2D2 was a superb, lovable movie character with no face. So the little trash can on wheels with a horn turned into a litany of toys.
However, YouTube user Greensheller, dissatisfied with the low standards of mass-produced toys, decided to improve his girlfriend's birthday offer.
By incorporating a Raspberry Pi into a typical R2D2 toy, the cocky little one is now equipped with even more gadgets than the character from the first film. These are Wi-Fi, voice control, face recognition, motion detection, distance detection, and recording and playback of audio messages - true , no holograms, sorry.
14. Xbox zero
Whoever designed the first Xbox controller apparently only glimpsed a pair of human hands, perhaps through a bus window or something, because it was notoriously bulky. however, its sheer size means it can fit other things like a Raspberry Pi Zero just fine inside.
Crafty craftsman Terence Eden has decided to do away with the Xbox and make the controller the best gaming console. Using a Pi Zero and a few steady hands, Terence's contraption plays many classic games on any TV.
Instead of letting people take pictures at your party, why not find out about your photo booth? Then dictate the media and control the message! We are still not going to suggest that you ban phones from your party; you'll still let your guests reassure people that they don't care that they're at the party.
This photo booth is based on a Raspberry Pi with a Pi camera module. It includes a touch screen and can email or upload photos to share with friends who haven't been listening and now have square heads.
16. Baby Monitor
New parents exist during a vague state of sleep deprivation that can become so confusing that they start to enjoy work - they will have something to try to do if you leave your kids somewhere , but who knows.
To fix this and get back to resenting the idea of being constantly busy, the ingenious Raspberry Pi has discovered that it can help reduce the number of nightmares associated with young children.
The inclusion of a webcam and a motion detection package allows you to broadcast your baby live to your phone or tablet. You will also monitor the temperature and even turn on soothing music; in this way, the child falls asleep again and allows you to engage in parenting effortlessly, i.e. without getting out of bed.
17. Smart TV
As with the printer mentioned above, buying a brand new TV for one extra feature can be a roadblock for the most dedicated techie. Ironically, these dedicated techies are also supposed to be the best fit. in order to negate the need for distribution.
You can transform any ordinary TV dumbass into a smart TV using your Raspberry Pi to stream Netflix, search Google, stream music, and watch movies. You can also install Kodi software on your Pi to stream from just one place.
Brewing tea is an English tradition that, although we still drink enough to swim a hippopotamus, is sadly forgotten in a world late for the dentist.
instructables.com user perilous wanted to resurrect the idea that you actually expect your tea to brew rather than pouring brown water down your throat after 10 seconds. So his smart and travel-ready device brews tea for the time you choose time (default five minutes) and ejects the tea and alerts you when it is ready.
Nintendo's Gameboy is one of the few successful games to let kids take it easy on car trips. However, their technology can no longer support the advances of recent phones, meaning it can't get Snapchat.
However, with the Raspberry Pi, you'll turn your old retro Gameboy into a replacement with a color display, more buttons, adjustable brightness, color contrast, and a Bluetooth USB adapter.
20. Christmas Lights Controller
There is nothing better than proving to your neighbors that you are becoming a burden than lighting your Christmas lights on Bonfire Night. However, once they are aware of the wise date, you will use a Raspberry Pi to Raise your holiday spirit up to 11. Having a Raspberry Pi Christmas Lights Controller can allow you to sync the lights to the music and even automate the entire display using the frequency spectrum of the live music you haven't turned off for a month.
1. How expensive can a Raspberry Pi be?
So here's the current lineup of Raspberry Pi 4: Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB of RAM for $35. Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB of RAM for $55. Raspberry Pi 4 with 8GB of RAM for $75.
2. Can I use my Raspberry Pi as a PC?
The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B comes in three configurations with 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB of memory. If you're thinking about using it as a desktop system, you should choose the 2GB or 4GB model. It's that simple. … The official Raspberry Pi case looks the best I've ever seen, at least for the RPi 4 board itself.0003
3. Is the Raspberry Pi 4 suitable for programming?
Raspberry Pi 4 is an excellent tiny personal computer for DIYers and programming enthusiasts with configurable memory, Gigabit Ethernet and dual display output.
