As luck would have it my favourite laptop died yesterday (Bamboo case). Motherboard is bricked after many years of faithful service. I’ve said previously that the HiFive unleashed would make a pretty good laptop with it’s quad core 64bit Arch and clock frequency. So it would be brilliant to have a HiFive Unleashed based laptop, (it’d certainly fit in the case) but there’s no interface to some of the essential peripherals, screen, USB, Keyboard, touchpad.
I guess given how open the project is I could start creating my own expansion boards but is there any coming from official channels? Or are community members working on any such peripheral interfaces?
Perhaps that’s a stupid idea but if nothing else, (given my starting place) I’d learn a lot even getting the board talking to a USB EHCI. Actually as I think the first run has sold it’s a fairly stupid idea.
