What is pi-top?

The easiest way to get to know Raspberry Pi
With a familiar look and feel of a laptop with a 13.3” HD screen, keyboard, track-pad and 10+ hours of battery life. The pi-top kit allows you use your Raspberry Pi anywhere you want.

Pi power
Simply plug in your existing Raspberry Pi and unleash the power of pi. pi-top works with all versions of Raspberry Pi but for the best performance upgrade to the latest Raspberry Pi 3 Model B which is 10x the processing performance of the original board. Slide by the acrylic slice cover and access all your GPIO on the Pi, or expand your hardware with the pi-top prototyping board to add extra functionality for your own projects.

pi-top with pi-topOS
pi-top comes bundled with pi-topOS and loads of educational software. pi-topOS (our maker based operating system) makes it easy to connect to Wi-Fi, monitor your battery life, and personalise your OS to suit your needs. Included on pi-topOS is CEEDUniverse which teaches you how to code, build circuits and make hardware with your Raspberry Pi in a fun gamified survival world.

Expand your hardware anyway you like with pi-topPROTO
The pi-topPROTO add on board is the first from pi-top. Add extra functionality to the pi-top by creating your own hardware directly on the board. Fitting neatly onto the rail the pi-topPROTO gives you access to all of the 40 GPIO pins on the Pi allowing you to integrate ADCs, motors, or whatever you can think of. Powered by the pi-top Hub you also have 3V, 5V and even 18V available at your disposal. So whatever you intend to make the pi-topPROTO is the place to start.
