At 4pm BST we pushed the big green button and our Kickstarter went live. After a pizza-fuelled evening responding to our backers' comments and watching our community's reaction, we were humbled to see that our project was fully funder see that we hit our target in just 4 hours!

What's next?

Yes! Our Kickstarter campaign will be live until August 8th. You can still back pi-top [4] on Kickstarter, and if you do it now, you can bag an awesome early bird deal: a pi-top [4], powered by the Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB of RAM for $199.

As an extra thank you to all our backers, we wanted to add a few little extras to your pi-top [4] as we hit certain milestones... So we're introducing our stretch goals! First up, limited edition pin badges!

Watch this space for more stretch goals and announcements as our Kickstarter campaign progresses. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far. We can't wait to see what you make with your pi-top [4]!
