It’s been a pleasure working with the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 4 GB RAM. This credit-card sized board runs Raspbian 10 Linux and can drive dual HDMI displays. I’ve attached one 4K monitor and set it to 2560x1440@60Hz for optimum viewing.
Now Dabble Desktop in its present incarnation is not available for the ARM CPU. This is the same family CPU that runs on all Android and Apple smartphones and tablets.
No matter. Dabble runs just fine in the Chromium web browser. It is in fact glorious. It’s snappy enough for my 56,000-word manuscript. The screen is such that it can display a good portion of the plot grid at one time. Indeed I’m thinking that the monitor should be remounted in portrait mode for the purposes of writing.
The 4K monitor is by far the most expensive component of this writing solution. The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B kit alone costs just north of $100. I have no financial ties to the vendor. I think that a writing solution at this price point is worth sharing.
