This is pretty complicated and expensive. It at least requires good
soldering skills , even betrer elecrronics skills and a HDMI driver board exactly
for your screen (can be found on eBay - ONLY if you know what you're doing !)

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

There may be some confusion here with Raspberry Pi 'laptops' being tales about in the forum that are based on using the Motorola Atrix Lapdock stations in conjunction with the Raspberry Pi. Because Motorola have discontinued the Lapdock they were available at good prices.
