Let me start by saying I love the PiTop 3 that i purchased for my daughter. She is 9 and loves it. I have noticed on here that several members like myself want to upgrade and put a RPi 4b inside. (We own 2x RPi 4b, and 2x Pi Zero W’s as well.) It seems the biggest hold up is the HUB. Now don’t get me wrong the pi-top 4 is beautiful and all, but not what my daughter or I want at this time. We like the laptop form and sliding keyboard. It just works. From what I can tell there are many on here who feel the same.
I see a really missed opportunity to retain and excite future product buyers. When you look at the sheer volume of units sold it would seem that a viable percentage would want to upgrade the speed and computing power of their existing unit and not have to move to a brick to do it.
I would be willing to spend $200 on a plug and play hub board just to have the only green laptop at the cafe or at work. I like this thing. Why can’t and why hasn’t this been done?
