Introduction: Raspberry Pi 2 Desktop Computer Setup
A cheap computer for basic daily tasks!
Step 1: The Monitor
The monitor in this setup is a Phillips 20" LED I bought from a local tech store but you can use a tv too.
Step 2: The Computer Itself
I am using the Raspberry Pi 2 which is pretty much the best version of the pi you can use for this. The pi in the picture is on top of a lego base which is being held with velcro on a desk drawer. I have an acrylic case for the pi 2 itself with a fan connected to the GPIO pin 5V and Ground. I have my wifi adapter,usb powered speakers connected to a usb and port and the sound port, i got the keyboard connected,a mouse adapter,a HDMI cable connected to the monitor with a DVI adapter. I got my 2Amp micro usb connected too. The back of my monitor is pretty messy haha.
Step 3: USB Powered Speakers
Every computer should have some source of audio and my monitor doesnt have any so I purchased a cheap pair of USB speakers! The apple sticker is just for deco, I got it from my friend that bought an ipod.
Step 4: Keyboard
The keyboard I use is a Logotech K120
Step 5: Mouse
The mouse I use is wireless and it is a Logitech M238
Step 6: Micro SD Card
I don't have any pics of my SD card because its very hard to take my pi from its base but its a Samsung Evo 16GB Class 10 card
Step 7: Great Computer for Cheap Price
In conclusion, you can get a decent computer that does most of what your regular computer can do with probably less than half of its price
