Sorry for this... Just testing the forum, as I had some issues connecting to it.
I am still waiting for my pi-top, it should arrive very soon (hopefully).
Yes, it arrived Nov 23. I assembled it and it works fine (i.e. as intended...). Since then I've not worked much on it, I had higher priorities. I suppose I will look at it again during holidays.
Yes the pi-top / CEED plays very nicely with RPi3 and you can overclock it for further speed gains without any 'hurt' !! What is needed though is a refinement in pi-topOS and in particular the Dashboard !! I love the idea and concept behind the dashboard - particularly for younger users / beginners but is buggy as hell at the moment and too memory hungry. I have tried in parallel to run/test the KANO-OS on a a Pi3 and as a similar concept but a bit more polished - it chews processing power like mad. It's worth noting that Kano STILL names their OS as beta - looking forward to stable versions of both Kano and pi-topOS.
