If you’ve been around enough online, you might have heard about something called Raspberry Pi. So what is Raspberry Pi, and why do you need one? Let’s dive in and learn about this inexpensive but insanely capable tiny computer.
What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python.
What makes Raspberry Pi different?
Typically, a computer is made up of the main system board, called a motherboard or logic board, and several other components plugged into it. You don’t see all of these components, because they’re enclosed in a case. The Pi, on the other hand, is a single-board computer, or SBC. An SBC is a complete computer built onto one circuit board. All the components needed for a fully functional computer, including the processor, memory, video chipset, storage, and so forth are built onto the SBC. This usually allows it to be much more compact and often less expensive. These microcomputers are designed to run any ARM-based Linux distribution for an operating system.
What can Raspberry Pi do?
The possibilities for a Raspberry Pi are almost endless. Whether you’re looking for a low-cost media center or your plex server, a Raspberry Pi can serve nicely. If retro gaming is your style, almost all of the retro consoles people have built are powered by Raspberry Pi. The microcomputer supports Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB-connected devices like keyboards, mice, storage devices, webcams, and more. The Raspberry Pi even supports Bluetooth, allowing you to pair an Xbox controller, for example, to play your favorite classic games. In terms of education, all young people deserve meaningful opportunities to learn how to create with digital technologies. With the help of CrowP-L, we can see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn how to program and understand how computers work.
CrowPi-L is a lite version laptop born out of CrowPi2, "L" stands for Lite, Light, and Laptop. This is a real Raspberry Pi computer.
We collected a lot of opinions from CrowPi users and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, focusing on solving many inconveniences of using Raspberry Pi DIY laptop, such as installing Raspberry Pi, switching system, heat dissipation, expanding screens, etc. Better yet, we still retain the highlights of the CrowPi series, built-in programming course system. Users will have a new experience bringing by CrowPi-L.
