Portable Office Computer Setup with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

Hi welcome to my blog, in this article i am going to share my small raspberry pi portable office computer setup which is totally energy saving. I made this setup using a raspberry pi 3model b+ single board computer, a 11.6 inch portable touchscreen monitor and a mi 20,000 mAh power bank. This setup will cost you around $230 / 16k, you can go with the cheap non touch monitors also. But the Portable monitor i am using is FHD 1080p IPS 10 point touch screen monitor specially designed for raspberry pi with builtin stereo speakers. The main advantage of this setup is its fully portable you can carry it where you want and 2nd it provides up to 15hrs of backup without any interruptions.



Like a normal office PC you can do all your works here, like Microsoft office, web browsing, email and PDF etc. This setup runs with a raspberry pi operating system (raspbian) this is a Debian based linux OS  which also allow coding and programing on it. Pre installed apps are Libre office, VLC media player, Blue J, Python, Scratch, Minecraft (pi edition), chromium web browser and more you can download from the terminal. Libre office allows you to open and edit Microsoft office files (.docx .ppt .xlsx) and also it allow to export it as windows office, also read .pdf files nice. For entertainment you can listen music using VLC media player and retro games are also welcome. Check the item list below:
