Pi-Top – the 3D printed Raspberry Pi laptop kit

pi-top topThe Raspberry Pi has taken the maker world by storm. From what was once a modest crowdfunding project has turned in to the gadgety tweaker’s must-have. The latest mod is named the Pi-Top and will convert your little puter in to a fully featured laptop.

Following the PiPhone and the refreshed ZX81, the Pi-Top is a DIY laptop based around the Raspberry Pi.

The Pi-Top doesn’t use any of those tiny, portable displays that are currently available for the Raspberry Pi, but instead uses a 13.3-inch 1366×768 HD TFT LCD display — basically the size of MacBook or Chromebook.
