Here's a thing I wrote about building mobile/modular computers with a raspberry pi: http://ajroach42.com/diy-convertible-computing/
@ajroach42 Damn useful! So to get myself started, I'm going to get
this raspberry pi: https://www.adafruit.com/product/3775
This power supply (the recommended one): https://www.adafruit.com/product/1995
and this case: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2258
Would this be an alright hub?: https://www.adafruit.com/product/2998
Also, does that pi have a full-size hdmi port? I'm not seeing it mentioned and can't tell from the picture/don't know other hdmi ports.
If so, then that's all I'd need to replace my desktop.
So here's what's in my cart:
- an 8gb microsd card
- an HDMI cable
- an HDMI monitor
- a USB keyboard
- a USB mouse
- a wireless access point
- the live end of a cat5 cable (ethernet)
I don't need anything else for this to be a functional computer, correct?
I second this. IME cheap SD cards are rarely as flakey as their reputation has them.
The Pi is rough on good SD cards and cheap ones alike. Once you have the SD card set up, take an image of it and write it to a DVD or stick it on a flash drive if your able.
@ajroach42 Ahh for me that's often a benefit, I'm just trying to give a note without having to handwrite it out. I used to have one that was a thermal thing and a keyboard where you'd type and it'd print after each enter and i loved it. I've got a... what's the name of the sort that use toner? for longer-lasting, costs me 4-7 cents a page. @emacsomancer @djsundog
