1 DRAFTING Dream Computer   @note

1.1 Introduction

1.1.1 Background

Like most people who use computers with regularity, I've come to have a personal definition of what my "perfect" computer would be. This document is an attempt to outline that specification, so when it comes time to buy a new device, I know exactly what I want.

It is a work-in-progress.

1.1.2 Overview

A clamshell convertible laptop which can unfold 360 degrees to become a tablet, with a roughly seven inch screen.

1.2 Specifications

1.2.1 Internals

  1. Battery

    No clue

  2. Processor

    Something that doesn't really use power if not in use - so like ARM maybe? I don't know.

  3. Radios
    1. Accelerometer


    2. WiFi

      As long as it has a hardware off-switch. Something that allows hotspotting/peer sharing.

1.2.2 Externals

1.2.3 Screen

E-ink touchscreen, nearly no bezel on the long face with thick short-face bezels (for gripping in tablet)

Fantasy: thermal printer so you can close a piece of paper in the clamshell and print to it.

1.2.4 Keyboard

Programmer's dvorak layout

1.2.5 Ports


1.2.6 Camera

A camera in the bezel, so paper can be leaned between the keyboard and screen and be photographed at a fixed distance.
