my thoughts exactly.. cant wait.

hdmi into hdmi micro adapter, usb to usb micro adapter, and raspberry pi usb power to dock usb connectors! perfect all in one setup. hell there might even be room to internalize the pi. that would be something!

A 700mhz processor is not going to offer any performance benefits over the atrix, methinks.

False.
The makers of raspberry pi spent a whole lot of time optimizing the software for the broadcom soc inside of it. Apparently in some benchmarks it doubles the performance of tegra2. Ill try and link to a source when I get home.

The raspberry pi uses the old arm 11 processor arch at 700MHz (vs dual 1.3GHz) and it isn't dual core. Nor does it have as much RAM (256 vs 1Gbyte) and its gfx unit is so so compared to the tegra. So while it might be faster at some tasks I doubt it can take on the atrix in most ways. However the pi looks very very cool. Looking forward to it.

Might still get the pi to dink with. Working in a microprocessors class now, might make use of it.

hey guys, just an update on the HDMI adapters necessary for this... looks like the guy in china finally got his head out of his ass and brought down the pricing (he had it listed @ $49.99!) of the adapter to $5.99! If anyone has another source for these, please share. This one particular seller is the only place i can find this damn thing, partly because of the mess o' results you get, even when searching for the correct terminology. Too many false positives, even with crafty google-fu .

I will buy a couple, one certainly as a backup because i can forsee these adapters getting worn out if needed to constantly plug and unplug while moving about and packing gear.

Hi,


as the Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC S and the upcoming Xperia S have a HDMI-Port, too: Will it be possible to use the Lapdock with some cables and the Xperia ARC S for Document editing and Webbrowsing??



Thanks

I can be certain that video and audio output would work with the appropriate adapter (the one i mentioned above will be necessary for the lapdock side) and cable for your device's output type.
USB on the other hand may or may not work. It all depends on whether your device supports acting as a USB host, in order to work with the USB HID keyboard and mouse of the lapdock.

Find out and please let us know. And remember that the USB port pushes 5V over the red usb wire!
