INCLUDES Raspberry Pi 3 with WiFi and Bluetooth.

The Raspberry Pi open source laptop that you’ve been waiting for has arrived with the Pi-Top! With this kit you can build your very own “laptop” which at it’s core runs off of the famous Raspberry Pi.

The laptop case comes with a screen, base top, base bottom, and the Pi-Top Hub PCB to take care of power management, the screen driver, and more for you.

The mission of Pi-Top is to take users from a beginner level to an advanced level of programming, design, and comfort. Let’s get computing!

What’s in the box?

  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

  • Screen – Connect the screen by simply slotting the metal hinge into the base bottom piece. A single cable is plugged into the Pi-Top Hub and away you go!

  • Base Top – Attach and remove the base top piece by sliding it over the base bottom and pressing down. You will hear a satisfying ‘click’ when you have popped it into place.

  • Base Bottom – The base bottom contains the battery and modular rail where you will pop in the Hub and Raspberry Pi 3. No wires or tools are required, like a lego laptop you snap everything into place. The Pi-Top smart battery pack is protected by a sheet of brushed stainless steel, so you can be sure your battery is securely in place.

  • Hub – With over 150 components on this circuit board, the Pi-Top Hub PCB takes care of power management, our screen driver and a host of other functionality which allows us to turn the Raspberry Pi into a great open source laptop.

  • 1x – 8GB SD Card with Pi-Top OS

  • Cables connecting Pi-Top pieces

  • Charger with AUS plug

  • Instruction Booklet

The cables and screws can be hard to find in the packaging. This video will help you find them.
