Hello. I want to custom build a small, cheap, and portable computer to practice coding on the go. I don't plan to code full complex games with shaders or anything. Just practice a new coding tactic on the go.
I set a hopeful price at $100 or less. I was looking into a raspberry pi. But i'm not sure if it can plug into a small monitor, rather than a full size TV. As I plan to use it on the go. Maybe if there are small HDMI monitors?
Anyways. Perhaps anyone with more knowledge on the pi can tell me? And if it doesn't work what else would you suggest for this build? And if it matters. I plan to practice python.
Here is a template i found...
System Usage:Practicing python on the go
Are you including monitor, peripherals, OS etc in your budget?:Yes
Preferred Websites / Stores for parts:N/A
Overclocking, yes or no?:maybe. But not needed
SLI / Crossfire, yes or no?:No
Monitor Resolution (if upgrading, post the resolution of the monitor resolution you want):N/A
Why are you upgrading?:
It will be much cheaper than a laptop/desktop though. it is a good option if you do not have much money to spare.
Yes. And the thing i was looking into (Raspberry pi) needs an external monitor, Keyboard. And mouse. (Not even sure if mouse works.) And I thought the price was reasonable for the pi for what it was. And what i was going to use it for. I may go a bit above $100. Because it is counting keyboard, monitor, mouse, and OS. And i planned to have it laid out like a 3DS XL. replacing bottom screen and buttons with a keyboard. As for OS. I think linux should work.
