Pi-Powered ‘Pocket Laptop’ Fits Inside an 11x17cm (4.3×6.7″) Plastic Bin Box | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
The build contains a 5600mAh battery with Pass-Through Charging, bluetooth keyboard, and a full-fledged Pi 3 which provides plenty of power and connectivity – but could easily be pared down for less options if you don’t need ’em:
Now this isn’t my first time attempting to make a fully working laptop using a Raspberry Pi.The laptop I made “The Pi-Berry Laptop” is built around the Raspberry Pi 3. It has 1GB RAM, Quad core CPU, 4 USB Ports and One Ethernet port. The laptop meets daily life needs and smoothly runs programs like VLC media player , Mozilla Firefox , Arduino IDE, Libre Office, Libre CAD etc…
For convenience of using and reading the Display of the laptop was chosen to be 7 Inch (IPS technology) HD Display.
The 5600mAh battery pack provides the power to the laptop. Once fully charged the laptop runs for about 2 hrs.This means you can use the raspberry pi 2 for your future projects (good news for Raspberry pi enthusiasts).
