Elecrow is at the forefront when it comes to Raspberry Pi laptop kits, especially now with the CrowPi-L. If you’re looking for something to constantly tinker with and perfect, chances are Elecrow is on your radar. It’s the same if you want to build or code.

What’s most impressive is how the CrowPi-L builds on established notebooks like the CrowPi2. Gone are the micro-USB ports (ugh) and in is the better USB-C. Want to take it with you? Now there is a powerful battery that can boast up to about six hours of operation.
