Re: Raspberry Pi Laptop

I have an old HP/Compaq Presario 2100. It only boots so far, then locks up. My idea is to gut it and use a RasPi... Not that I know how, but that's the goal.

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

I freely admit I have no idea how, but I'm interested in trying to make a RasPI laptop. I have 2 old laptops that don't boot, that I can gut... Initially I'd say the old HP Presario would be the better of the 2, since the Dell has had tea spilled into it. Will be going through the thread later this ...
