Hackery 21 has failed to show us his LEET H4X00R SKILLZ> Still waiting, Hack.
May 22, 2012 - Whew!, we have been busy! Doing interviews, ordering parts, etc. all we need now is the RasPi. We ordered in the mid April and expect it by mid July. Also needed is the screen. We are still selecting one.
May 5, 2012 - 90% Parts ordered! 90% of parts have been ordered! This includes keyboards,SD Card extenders, Touchpads, Battery, USB Hub, etc.
May 4, 2012 - Website created! http://raspberrypilaptop.tk
May 3, 2012 - Yup! Our first update! We originally thought that we needed to get a loan to get the project going or go to kickstarter (After Finished Prototype) ,But It turns out that somebody has volunteered to be a potential investor if the prototype works! Thanks to Raiyan Memon for volunteering! You will not be dissapointed!
Suggestions! Leave suggestions here!
Suggestions from Gus3:
- multiple system options (Debian, Arch, Fedora, Bodhi, perhaps others, perhaps non-Linux)
- send a stated percentage back to the Raspberry Pi Foundation
(Good ideas! I will talk to the others about them!-hackery21, to Gus3)
Suggestions from User:Celtic_hackr:
My daughter and I will be building PiPads this summer.
- Case design - aluminum?
- in-case rechargable LiPo slim batteries
- docking station?
(are these suggestions for us or are you talking about your project? Thanks! -hackery21 to Celtic_hackr)
Suggestions from User:prpplague
- list of components ordered
- block diagram of component connections
(Ok I will put up a list of components ordered soon. What do you mean by block diagram? Thanks! -hackery21 to prpplague)
