Raspberry Pi Cases - Part 2

Bramble Wooden Case

I'm still waiting for delivery of my Pi, so have been looking at case options again. Here are some more that look quite interesting, the PiBow, PiWorks and Bramble Pi

OS Options


As well as the choice of case there are a number of options for operating system for the Raspberry Pi.

Without getting too technical, the Pi has an ARM based processor so will only run an ARM compatible operating system. Both Windows (up to windows 7) and Mac OS X run on x86 based processors so are not compatible with the Pi. The main operating system that the Pi will run would be Linux.

Case Choices

One of the most important choices while I wait for my Pi to arrive is what case to put it in. The case will not only stop the Pi getting damaged and dusty it will also make it look good.

Searching on the internet and looking on the official Raspberry Pi site and their forums, there are all sorts of cases available. Made from everything from Lego and paper to metal, plastic and wood.

Welcome to My Raspberry Pi Blog


I've just ordered my Raspberry Pi computer and while I'm waiting for delivery I decided to set up a blog. I'll post here when I get chance and share my experience and ideas about using it.
