lol, it is more just a proof of concept.
Outside, I prefer my tablet Wink

It is a Raspberry Pi running Puppy.

You might prefer model A for this purpose, it consumes 1/3 less energy, but has just 256 MB Ram and no ethernet. Price is about 30 Euro + 6 Euro for a case, and 5 Euro for a SD-Card.

Attached are:

- Headphone
- 3.5 inch Car Monitor (Video out, usually used for rear cameras, ~20 Euro)
- A wireless keyboard with touchpad (~30 Euro)
- a 10.000 m/Ah powerbank with 5 V DC for the Raspi and 9 or 12 V for the Monitor (with 9 V the image is slightly worse), ~40-50 Euro

I used the cables I had, for the "final version" I will replace them with very short ones.

It is difficult, but possible to read text, so the main purpose for such a system would be to watch videos or use it for special purposes, like measurements.
