Today, we're featuring the Raspberry Pi 5 again, but this time, it comes with some extra goodies. We're unboxing the Raspberry Pi 5 Desktop Kit, which has (almost) everything you need in one box. What makes it different, and who's it best for? Check out the video below to find out.

NOTE: Kits are available in 8 GB, 4 GB, and the base kit without the Raspberry Pi included. Make sure you order the one you need!

What's In The Raspberry Pi 5 Desktop Kit Box?

The Raspberry Pi 5 Desktop Kit is designed to get users up and running quickly. The kit includes all the accessories necessary for a fully functional desktop setup: a sleek case, a 27 W power supply, a preloaded microSD card with Raspberry Pi OS, the official Raspberry Pi keyboard and mouse, two micro HDMI to HDMI cables, and a comprehensive beginner's guide. Depending on where you buy your kit and the price you pay, the Raspberry Pi 5 itself may or may not be included. At Elektor, to give you more flexibility, the Raspberry Pi 5 is sold separately.

Quality and Convenience

Our unboxing video takes viewers through the step-by-step process of setting up the Raspberry Pi 5 Desktop Kit, configuring initial settings, and getting online. It is a very easy process, the Raspberry Pi 5 is easy to mount in the case, which comes with a cooling fan, ensuring a hassle-free setup right out of the box. The inclusion of a high-quality printed  beginner's guide is a nice touch, in these days when all documentation is usually on the Internet, leafing through a paper guide can be a nice change of pace. Also useful is the official Raspberry Pi keyboard acting as a hub, allowing users to connect their mouse and other USB devices directly to the keyboard for added convenience. Of course, as you all know the Raspberry Pi is able to connect directly to any TV or any computer monitor, but the anticipation of a dedicated, official Raspberry Pi monitor later this year adds another layer of excitement for users looking to complete their desktop experience!

There you have it: a complete computer system in a box, powerful enough to tackle real-world problems both at home and in industry. Yet, it's user-friendly enough to give to a 10-year-old and watch their eyes light up with excitement as they imagine what they can create. That's the Raspberry Pi 5 Desktop Kit.
