The latest version of the Raspberry Pi is No. 4, Model B, which is available either to buy as a standalone piece of kit or you can buy a starter kit that contains all the other essentials that you’ll need; SD Card, Raspberry Pi case and cooling fans (we prefer the starter kits that are super easy to put together and should take you no longer than about 10mins).
The main difference between between starter kits is the additional accessories and the size of the SD Card that comes with them – usually it’s either 32GB or higher (32GB is a pretty good start for most people).
If you’re looking for something more challenging then there are a number of full kits combined with learning projects that are available. We’d recommend these for the slightly more advanced user, as some of them come with coding projects and options to ‘build’ your Raspberry Pi up with different components (pi-top 4 is a good example).
The Raspberry PI 4 Model B Starter Kit, complete with 64GB SD Card & pre-loaded with Raspbian.
The Raspberry PI 400 is the complete Raspberry Pi 4 all based within a ‘PC’
The whole kit, Raspberry Pi 4 already installed, 32GB SD Card & wireless keyboard & mouse.
You can buy just the Raspberry Pi 4B with 8GB RAM and then get your own case & fans, enabling you to build your own custom Raspberry Pi set up.
The Pi 4with 8GB RAM Starter kit is another that is tremendous value for money & will get you started. Comes with 8GB of RAM & 63GB SSD Card.
