What I really want is a laptop with SUPER CAPACITORS instead of batteries, because super capacitors last for many million charges, while batteries last for about 1000 charges...
That's how Plasmana sticks out from the rest of the world. When someone asks him what would make a computer attractive, he responds supercapacitors... I love supercapacitors, even made a group. Imagine putting a couple ultracapacitors, like 1000F each, it'd last like a full 10 minutes!
Another good thing about them is they are environmental friendly, while the batteries contains flammable, toxic heavy metals... And I need to get and newer capacitor, my 1F one I have now takes forever to charge... (About 30 seconds to 1 minute)
I just got a tiny 1F 2.5 volt capacitor out of my old broken xbox, yay.
Cool! What are you going to do with it?
I dunno, maybe make a beam robot?
That is a good idea!
Environmentally friendly And they said PCB's where good 50 years ago ... (( Boy where they wrong ))

Where to begin.... Power; fairly powerful, dual core is a must, 4gb RAM, 120-500gb HDD, with a built in SSD (8gb) keep the OS on the SSD (faster startup) Looks; sleek, made of really strong plastic/Kevlar/carbon fiber, glossy screen (matte optional), colors? white, black (shiny like a psp, but fingerprints don't effect it)
Now, that is a desktop computer you are looking for... :-)
