“I just wanted to see if it was possible to make an ultraportable, mobile Raspberry Pi that you can take to go,” explained Nathan Morgan, founder of the laptop parts site Parts-People.com.

Morgan's Pi-to-Go minicomputer sports a 640-by-480 pixel display; a touchpad; a 64GB solid-state drive; and support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and HDMI. "It's not the lightest or thinnest handheld," Morgan said in an interview, "but I didn't care about that when I was building it. I just wanted it to meet all the criteria for being a portable Pi."
