Raspberry Pi 400 with Ubuntu 20.10 Desktop Official!

Raspberry Pi have released the Pi 400: a Pi keyboard that features a Raspberry Pi 4 built-in, with 4 GB RAM. We'll tear into the box, take a look at the out of box experience, and then boot up Ubuntu 20.10 Desktop, downloaded from Canonical's official site. Beyond the obvious functionality (such as Office suite), it plays YouTube well, supports Plex playback (even h265) after installing VLC, and can support DRM sites such as Netflix with support from the community. Is it a gimmic? Or is this the ideal kit for a maker who loves that old Commodore style "keyboard computer"?
