Keybord connection method
Is the keyboard and trackpad connected over USB or Bluetooth? I want to use this item with a Pi 2 so this could be a dealbreaker!
Andy Marks
  • It's okay, I found the answer in the downloadable build manuals on your site - it suggests that if your keyboard and trackpad don't work, "Make sure that the USB plug in the pi-top is properly inserted into the Raspberry Pi as this is what communicates with the Keyboard and Trackpad." - on p.43 Thanks for your advice, though. If I hadn't found the manual, that would have been my next plan!

Is Pi-top V2 compatible with Pi 3B+?
I read about heat sink pad being too thick for this. Happy to use a squirt of heatsink compound if required as an alternative!

Can the heatsink bridge handle heat?
When using the Raspberry pi 3 model B with the passive heatsink , the temperature is okay. What happens with the compatible Asus Tinkerboard mounted in the pi-top model 2.0 ; is it getting dangerous hot or can this heatsink handle the HOT temperature?
Macgyver
  • The Pi-Top was not designed for the Asus Tinkerboard, and therefore has not been tested.

jury rigging an ipaper display
I'd love a simple cheap laptop that I could use on the beach, but to do that I'd need an eink display. Screen refresh time wouldn't worry me too much as it's only command line stuff. I'm not averse to a spot of hardware hacking if this is technically possible! Is the output from the pitop to the screen HDMI? If so presumably I can just jury rig any HDMI suitable display on the output? Sorry - I realise this is probably a very stupid question!
