  1. Those are pretty overpowered for my planned usage and aren't made for a mobile experience (those are desktop cpu). The size in this case is also important. Yeah I believe that phone performance is my goal, I find them powerful enough for my use and do not need a really large battery. I guess that the datasheet for those parts won't be find online? This is a problem, an expected one but still a large one... But smaller, with a motherboard of the size of a phone. That you could swap in any other device (that I obviously made) like a swappable laptops' battery. The compute stick that you showed is the perfect example, I could have basically asked "how can I make one of them by myself?" without the usb part
  2. Yeah, I got a bit inspired by it. Except that I want mine to be connected to a completely custom "chassis" which will not necessary contains a windows operating system, having the ability to even put a battery in it (those nuc computer cannot be run on them for a long) Sure the problems are the parts... I believe that mobile processors (like snapdragon) are the best I can get (there's even a development kit available), but I really do not have any idea for ram and storage. Saw it just a hour ago and this is the closest I could find. Just that I want to have something more powerful and make my custom adapted devices with a proper connector (not a single usb port)
  3. Hey, I am a programmer and got a pretty nice idea today which I would like to have done if this is possible. I thought of having a really small component containing cpu/ram/ssd soldered like in a laptop, that you will be able to plug in the "peripheral" part which contains the screen/mouse/buttons/others. Basically this is a mini pc that you can plug everywhere, so you could have a device small as a phone, a tablet or a tv and still get the same storage. Like I said I am a programmer so I should be able to manage the software part even if I had to make my own OS, but I know close to nothing hardware side. I first thought of using a raspberry but I would like to have a more powerful cpu/gpu, same for storage/ram size. So I believe that I need to use laptop parts or even a whole motherboard, for learning purpose I would like to build my own but I feel like buying those parts isn't available for consumers (maybe on ebay?) Since having windows or any other current OS isn't my priority I could even use a ARM based cpu architecture if I have a way to buy one of them (like a modern smartphone processor) but it seems impossible. Basically, how can a get parts for what I want to achieve? I know that this is really hard and probably out of my knowledge but I would like to learn eventually.
