Raspberry Pi Laptop

This is just a fun project I had. I have been playing with Raspberry Pi quit a bit lately, it is quit an impressive little box. I bought three of them and want to use one as a portable box.

Following the instruction on various online posts, mainly from this one:

Here are the components that I bought besides the Pi itself (~$125 total):
1. Motorola Atrix 4G Lapdock $79.99
2. Atrix cable bundle $17.99
3. Micro HDMI adapter $10.25
4. Micro USB adapter $5.64
5. Airlink WiFi module (optional) $10.13
6. Some velcro sticks local shop.

Here is the final result.

I have some idea of putting the Raspberry Pi into good network usage, but a bit early. Some other time, some other post when the project is more mature...  :)


  1. What's the battery capacity and what's the uptime with it?

    1. I cant remember if I have ever time it that way. But with wireless on and normal amount of work, I think it went for 5 to 6 hours without recharge.

  2. How well does it run? Can it run the Internet pretty well with games and downloads and such?

    1. Hi Ajay, in general I find it a bit lacking when running GUI but perfectly fine with command line stuff, which is what I mostly work under...

  3. How did you plug the micro HDMI cable into the dock? Wouldn't you need a male to female cable instead of the male to male one in the cable bundle?

    1. Hi James, the cable bundle "Cable Adapter Set for Motorola Atrix 4G - Micro-HDMI (M) to Micro-HDMI (M) Cable and Micro-USB (F) to Micro-USB (M) Cable" provides all the gender changers needed for the connections. :)

  4. Great project; good work keeping it nice and clean. I also did this and agree the battery lasts 5-6hrs. Not a replacement for a regular desktop, but it makes it easy to set up projects or do programming on the Pi.

  5. I high appreciate this post. It’s hard to find the good from the bad sometimes, but I think you’ve nailed it! would you mind updating your blog with more information?

  6. Great blog, First time heard of Raspberry Pi Laptop. Call Asus Support Number to get assistance for any problem related to laptop.
