Available in any colour you like, as long as you like bright green! The pi-top is a Raspberry Pi-based laptop that began its commercial life as a crowd-funded project in 2015, and CJE Micro’s released a RISC OS flavoured version in 2016 called the RapidO Top pi-topRO.
Now that’s a solid state offer, if ever I saw one! From now until 8th October, 2018, Elesar Ltd‘s Titanium motherboard is available to buy with a jolly useful optional extra – a SanDisk 128GB solid state drive (SSD), pre-loaded with a standard RISC OS 5 disc image.

Following the surprise teaser released towards the end of January of Ident Computer’s new Raspberry Pi-based kit computer, the Ident WinCE, more details of the system have now been revealed.
