pi-topRO - the new RISC OS portable computer
It has been a long time coming but Fourth Dimension is now pleased to announce that we are able to supply the first RISC OS portable computer since Acorn's A4 (launched in 1992)
Based on the 'pi-top' and incorporating the Raspberry Pi model B. Extensive work has been undertaken to add full RISC OS support.
RISC OS software included:
Complete system with Raspberry Pi 2 or 3, speaker, RTC and nano WiFi Router £499 including UK mainland delivery.
The keyboard is 86% the size of a RiscPC keyboard. As with most portable/small keyboards some compromises have had to be made, the Function keys are accessed using the 'pi-top' modifier key. Break and most normal keys are available.
The system is also available without nano WiFi Router and/or Speaker. Software and hardware upgrades are available separately for users who have already purchased a pi-top.
Software and hardware upgrade kits for the pi-topCEED coming soon!
Update for pre announcement purchasers: The 'Fn' modifier key will work correctly if you set 'Num Lock' OFF in !Configure. NB. Not having to use the 'pi-top' modifier key also seems to significantly reduce spurious key entry and repeats. Thanks to Jon Abbott for spotting the cause.
Users can choose the the latest model Raspberry Pi, the Pi 3, or go with the Pi 2 for currently greater software compatibility.
The pi-topRO is available with a variety of different options:
