PI HARDER - the budget RISC OS computer with SSD storage as standardPI HARDER is a RISC OS computer with solid state storage based around the Raspberry Pi 4B. Even though it’s a budget system, it has a luxury looking aluminium case, and is still a very capable workhorse with the following specifications:With a temperature controlled internal fan to keep the system cool, it comes overclocked to the max out of the box, and you’ll still struggle to hear the whisper-quiet fan unless you get very close.At the front of the case, there are two additional USB ports, SD card slot (for ease of popping out the SD to use Linux or another RISC OS card!) and a momentary illuminated push button which gives you control over when the system is powered up.We can even convert your existing Raspberry Pi 4 into a Pi Harder, and you’ll get a substantial discount on the price!Processor Speed: 2.3GHzMemory: 4Gb / 8GB RAMSSD Capacity: 120GB or 240GB internal SSDNetworking: Gigabit Ethernet portUSB ports:5 external (including two front ports)Audio/Video:3.5mm Audio, audio over HDMITwin full sized HDMI portsUp to 3840x2160 HDMI graphicsSD Card: 64GB Class 10 for OS and back up storage and OSCooling:Temperature controlled internal fanPower Control:Full control using the front power buttonOS and Software:RISC OS 5.28 plus nearly 2GB of RISC OS Software as standardOptions:Commercial software pack (worth over £500)PI HARDERis built to order by hand, and are available to custom specifications, including additional hard discs, external optical drives and other accessories.Please visit our dedicated PiHard website for further details and to buy!Upgrade your existing system to a PiHarderIf you already own a Pi 4 in a standard plastic case (or no case at all!), we can upgrade your system to one of our PiHarder systems, using our FOURtify scheme, for a much reduced price. Rather than a trade in scheme, we incorporate your existing hardware into our system, including installing EDOS on the system at a configuration to suit you.When installed in our PiHarder system, the Operating Systems can be safely run at 2.3GHz without the risk of overheating. We can even install EDOS, our RISC OS and Linux Easy Dual Operating System. Using EDOS, your PiHardercan use both RISC OS and Linux, with the Linux-based Raspberry Pi OS making the best use of a solid state drive over a high speed USB 3 connection. Sadly, it’s so fast, you may never see the Raspberry Pi splash screen.Please see the EDOS pagefor an overview of EDOS, and contact us for details of our FOURtify scheme.
