I have a Raspberry Pi 4 2GB lying around and I want to somehow combine the power of my laptop and the pi as a cluster. I there a way to do this?

Thanks

I doubt it would really be worth the trouble-- getting things to run on clustered systems is difficult at best.

 

If you're looking for fun and useful projects for a Pi, you can set one up as a fileserver pretty easily, and you'll get decent performance if you use an external HDD with the pi's gigabit LAN and USB3.

What do you stand to gain by clustering one slow device with another slow device? At best you end up with one mediocre device that can only run applications that can be computed on clusters.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah but there should be some way right?

Some way to do what exactly? A "cluster" requires software that can run in a cluster configuration. A cluster is basically just a bunch of servers running software that benefits from this in some way.
