How to design an ultra-compact laptop computer with a Raspberry Pi computer

In this article, we will cover the basics of a computer, including hardware, software, and software development.

We will then get to the technical details of building and running a RaspberryPi computer, which can be configured with the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, and a variety of different configurations. 

We will then be using a Raspberry PC as our example computer, with a Pi-powered ARM-based processor, and an embedded Linux distribution called Raspbian.

We can then configure our Pi to run our Raspberry Pi software, as well as our own applications, using a command-line interface, or even with a graphical user interface (GUI). 

We start by building a computer for ourselves: the RaspberryPi. 

Before we get started, we need to be sure we have the necessary components. 

A Raspberry Pi is a computer with an ARM-powered processor, a USB port, a RAM disk, and USB storage. 

It has a microSD slot for storing files, and it can be powered from USB. 

With a Raspberry Computer, you can add a few more components to make it even more portable and easy to store. 

The Raspberry Pi has the following components: A MicroSD card slot for writing and reading An ARM processor A USB port for connecting a microUSB cable An Ethernet cable A SATA cable  A microSD card A battery  Two GPIO pins An expansion port A keyboard   For more information on the Raspberry, check out this post: 

If you don’t already have a Raspberry, you will need to make one. 

Here are the steps to get your Raspberry Pi ready to go: 1.

Connect the Raspberry to your computer and power it on. 

Power up your Raspberry with an Ethernet cable from your computer, or a USB cable. 

You can then connect the Raspberry directly to your RaspberryPi by plugging it into a USB plug. 

Connect the USB port to your USB hub. 

Open up the Settings app on your phone. 

Tap on “Network”. 

Tap “Internet”. 

Then tap “Add Network”. 

Enter the Raspberry’s IP address. 

Scroll down to “Add Port”. 

Now tap on “Add Address”. 

Your RaspberryPi will connect to the internet. 


Install the RaspberryOS software on your Raspberry. 

Download and install the latest RaspberryOS (Raspbian OS). 

Install the RaspPi distribution. 

Install and configure the Pi software. 

Check your Raspberry’s serial number. 

Click “Next”. 

Next, click “Finish”. 

You’ll be asked if you want to connect to your Pi via Ethernet or USB.

Click “Next” again. 

After a few seconds, you’ll see a screen like this:  3.

Configure your Raspberry computer. 

Set up a Raspberry.

Choose a location to store your Pi. 

Find your Pi and enter its serial number and MAC address.

(This should be the serial number of your Pi, or the number of the device it is connected to.) 

Find the USB ports and connect them to your PC. 

Your Pi should now be connected to your network. 


Install your RaspPi software.

Download and Install RaspBreadboard (RaspBios). 

You will be asked for the name of the software.

Enter the name “RaspBoot”. 

Press the “Download” button. 

Enter your Raspberry device’s serial and MAC addresses. 

Then click “Continue”. 

Click on the “Finish” button to confirm your download. 

Once you’re done, the RaspBoot software should begin downloading. 


Start the Raspberry.

Go to Settings > About. 

This should open up the About screen. 

Press on the Menu button, then tap “About”. 

Scroll to the bottom of the screen and select Raspberry. Scroll to about and tap “Raspberry”.

You should see your Raspberrypi running on your network, with an IP address of, the MAC address of 7A0F3F5E, and your serial number in the following format: 00:00:1F:F0:B0:0F:00. 


Run the Rpi OS.

Click “Install OS”. 

This will start the R.A.P.T. bootloader on your device. 


Install Rpi Software.

You can find the RPiOS installation page on the Raspberry Pi’s home page: 8
