Resilient computer

Pelican case and raspberry pi

I’ve been thinking about making a portable low-power resilient computer for quite a while and have been slowly assembling the parts that i’ll use to make it. My main goal with it is to have a backup computer if my macbook crashes.

It needs to

  • run all the software tools I need to daily and creative tasks
  • work offline and connect to the internet
  • run on battery power, grid power or solar power
  • is easy to repair and upgrade if needed

Parts acquired so far

  • Raspberry Pi 4 (dimensions 4” x 2.75” x 0.75”)
  • Anker external battery
  • Used pelican case
  • Old bluetooth apple keyboard (will be retrofitted to run without batteries)
  • Switch for power source
  • old wireless mac keyboard

Parts to get
