CrowPi-L Raspberry Pi laptop review

CrowPi-L: 30 Seconds Review

This is a déja-vu for Elecrow with a laptop based on the beloved Raspberry Pi (opens in new tab) platform. The special thing about this edition is that it is more streamlined compared to the CrowPi2 (opens in new tab) notebook, with an emphasis on a simple laptop rather than a complicated development kit with a laptop. Elecrow is successful in this and the CrowPi-L is a computer that even small children can use.

Being a kit, the assembly process is a breeze and only takes a few minutes to complete. The cooling system is below par, while the LCD resolution is on the low side. Still, the CrowPi-L can perform adequately as an IoT debugging PC or an ARM development system, deviating from its initial mandate to be a learning tool.

CrowPi-L: prices and availability

The CrowPi-L laptop is available in two flavors. The Basic kit includes only the computer and hardware accessories, while the Advanced kit includes the Basic kit and includes a breakout board for the Pi’s GPIOs and a starter kit box containing 22 electronic modules. Both versions can be purchased with or without a Raspberry Pi board. When purchased with the Pi, there are only two Pi models available, either 4GB or 8GB RAM. The CrowPi-L Basic kit without Pi costs $203.15 (opens in new tab) while the advanced kit with the 8 GB Pi costs $360.15.
