Please pay attention to an earnest plea from a person who has pulled cards and ram from xt-at 286-386 days. Some people are innovating, at least follow those lines. Help make Desktop Computing Obsolete.
Dockables and Convertibles that means Tablets that transform into Laptops and Desktops. Then the Abominable Laptop Hinge or Lid failure will not bother you.
Tablets, Nettops, Netbooks and Notebooks are the future. Low power consumption, wireless, light, modular, low voltage.
If you are still fanatic about Desktop Computers, here are the ways you can move in the right direction, from legacy to Futuristic !
- Make the internals of a Desktop computer, Dust Free. 50 Microns particle, not any larger.
- Make the Desktop Computer SMPS and design Earth Free, Two Wire Only, No Y caps.
- Let it work on a 12-24 V DC Bus/Grid Standard, With External Connectors. Adapter Outside.
- No Fan should be used, No moving or Rotating parts inside, No Wires, good connectors.
- Modular Plugin, Stackable System to be used for External CDROM/DVD and HDD Drives.
- Flash Integration Internal for main OS Firmware and External Flash like HDD Stackable.
- DVD, HDD, Flash Expansion on USB Removable or SATA Stackable like Building Blocks.
- For a Whooping One Grand, People deserve a Backplane Plugin Architecture in the Desktop.
- Box, LCD/LED Monitor, HDD, Wi-Fi must not consume more than a Maximum of 50 Watts.
- All Internal and External Modules and Devices should go to quiescent state, non-obtrusively.
