Create your laptop thanks to Raspberry Pi and its accessories

Pórtail Pi

The uses and the Community of Raspberry Pi are many and very wide. This is interesting as fixtures and accessories can be created for this SBC board. A user who also has a 3D printer has been able to create a laptop for Raspberry Pi using original accessories.

The process is very simple and the costs are very low, which means that we have a laptop for very little money without forgetting that by depending on the SBC board, we can expand and replace the model without having to spend a lot of money or buy another laptop.

The project is easy to carry out and we can build it ourselves if we have a 3D printer. For this we will only need a Raspberry Pi 3 board, a 7-inch LCD screenIn this case, it must be the official Raspberry Pi screen; an RII Wireless keyboard and a Raspberry Pi battery.

This laptop needs the official Raspberry Pi screen to run smoothly

Once we have these components, we have to print the case and it's just a matter of assembling component after component. The case is created to be compatible with the Raspberry Pi as well as the RII Wireless keyboard. The screen can be connect via the Raspberry Pi GPIO port so the HDMI port is free. The only downside to this project is that the autonomy solution is not very high and we will have to depend on batteries or cells. But the good thing about this project is that if Raspberry Pi 4 or 5 is launched in the future, the user will only have to change the SBC board.

In any case, thanks to an official component such as the Raspberry Pi screen, we can have a fully functional laptop that is hard against shocks, perfect for undemanding people or for children who do not need to have a powerful laptop.
