- A 11.6" motorola lapdock (droid bionic or atrix 4G models) will cost about $50
- A 10.1" motorola lapdock ("100" model) will cost about $40 (but it's soooo fugly!!!!)
So, I'll probably get one of these models soon when I find a decent deal.
However, I can get a working, complete, 5-15 yr old laptop (variety of models) almost gratis (the computer costs about the price of shipping it) on ebay or at a thrift store. (e.g., pre-lenovo IBM thinkpads... seriously, fuck lenovo)
- the main advantages of using the pi over a cheap used laptop with linux on it are the superior documentation / user support / community, and the GPIO
- a laptop will be hard to hack with the raspberry pi. I would need drivers and adapters for the LCD. SATA compatibility could be done but why bother. Instead I could replace the motherboard in a laptop with an UDOO, CubieBoard, BananaPi, etc, which have LVDS output!
