A few months ago I found through a MOOC at Universidad Galileo, that was possible to convert a Raspberry PI in “almost” a laptop. This idea caught my attention, by turning this “micro” in an independent computer. I investigate how to do it and I concluded that it was possible for me to do so, although it was not “quite easy”. Below I detail what I did to achieve my RBPI used as a laptop. I have based on other blogs, in which details nearly the same procedure. I detail which worked for me, the problems I had, and how I finally managed to solve it
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
