With the new 7″ touch screen from the Raspberry Pi team we should be very close to building a very useful Pi Laptop. It could be built very small complete with access to the HDMI port which would allow plugging the Pi into a bigger screen when in your office.
Battery technology has moved on and with the PiJuice building it gets easier.
As one of the smallest systems around there’s so many amazing things you could do with the Raspberry Pi if it was self-powered and portable. With PiJuice we want to provide not only the best portable hardware/software solution, but also a set of inspiring and affordable guided projects for fun and learning in the real world.
Build in connection to a laptop drive and it could become your home computer that you then use on a commute or when out in the field, and then connect it up at work with all the files you need.
The specs I propose:
- 7″ touchscreen
- HDMI port available
- Laptop hard drive connection
- Built in keyboard
- Small form
If anyone local to Cornwall wants to help design one please let me know I would love to build something.
