Pi-Top's modular rail system that comes with the new notebook case allows users to add more optional modules. In addition to the new 14-inch 1080o display with the case, Pi-Top also included a Videocore IV 3D GPU, an hdmi port and an 8 GB microSD card preinstalled with the Android-based Polaris OS.

The Raspberry Pi single-board computers are very popular among the DIY community, and we’ve seen this versatile piece of hardware included in mini PCs, retro consoles, smart speakers and even notebooks. Speaking of notebooks, the UK-based company Pi-Top announced that it is updating its Raspberry PI notebook, turning it into a modular model.

The standard Raspberry Pi computer comes with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. This can be added to Pi-Top’s new case that includes features like:
•    14-inch 1080p display
•    Videocore IV 3D GPU
•    8 GB SD card that comes preinstalled with the Polaris Pi-TopOS
•    HDMI port
•    Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.1 + Ethernet port
•    4x USB 3.0 connectors
•    Audio jack
•    microSD card slot

The keyboard can slide down thanks to the modular rail system, and users can add optional modules, like a camera interface, a display interface, 40-pin GPIO connectors, a speaker, the PULSE and a PROTO board. The case also comes with a gesture control trackpad and a battery that should last for up to 6-8 hours.

The modular Pi-Top modular case is available for US$285 ($320 including the Raspberry Pi processor) and ships with an inventor’s kit that contains more than 20 DIY projects.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
