U.K. edtech startup pi-top has a new learn-to-code-and-tinker machine. It’s another modular Raspberry Pi-powered laptop but this time they’ve reduced the number of steps needed to put it together, as well as adding a slider keyboard design so the Qwerty panel can be pulled out to provide access to a rail for mounting and tinkering with electronics.

It’s a neat combination of the original pi-top laptop concept and the lower cost pi-topCeed desktop which has a rail below the screen where add-on electronics can also be attached. (The $150 price-tag on the latter device has made it a popular options for schools and code clubs wanting kit for STEM purposes, according to the startup.)

The new pi-top laptop is pi-top’s most expensive edtech device yet; priced at $319 with a Raspberry Pi 3 (or $284.99 without).
