It's wedge shaped case with attached display part. I'm wondering what are its dimensions. Something like that could be a starting point for an Amiga laptop.

@Tomppeli

Vampire V4 might fit in there and if the "hub" PCB can pass the video through to the screen without the need to connect the Pi's JTAG then it shouldn't take a lot of work.

Depending on the internal space and connections is may be possible to put in other boards - I'm thinking of a nano size itx running AROS, of course

Cheers,
Nigel.

It would be interesting, but the big question would indeed be if the screen can be passed to the Vampire.

Here's the dimensions for the Pi-Top.

341 x 209 mm (W x D)
Front thickness 10mm
Rear thickness 47mm

It.s been out for a wee while now. A bit expensive, though.

If you don't like the grey one, you can buy it in lurid green!

This is a real laptop, meaning a lot of the price goes to the batteries.

A FPGA card is power hungry compared to an ARM board.

If you are just looking for compact desktop case, a small keyboard an a hdmi connector, there are other cheaper possibilities.

No problem to get the Vampire board working since the Pi-top has a HDMI-LVDS
converter board included!

Just kick out the pie and replace it with Vampire V4!
Instant Amiga Laptop!

Start flaming NOW!

I wouldn't be surprised if a few of you manage to pull off something like a portable V4 system. AROS? That's kind of redundant, since you can run that one of the existing X64 laptops.

Portable Pis? I don't get that either, since ARM based portable devices are hardly rare.

And if you want flame bait, I'm still rooting for the PPC laptop, because that could run a PPC NG OS.
