Having been graduated with a Computer Science degree and working in an IT job. I do like to think that I know just a little bit about computers.
However, the topic of “dream notebook” is actually quite a tough one. Instead of describing the speed of processors, size of RAM, hard disks, operating systems, screen size and all those technical specifications, I thought I’d go all out with my imagination here on what I want my dream notebook to be able to do.
Here goes 3 of the features I’d love to have!
- a smell function – it’ll be neat to be able to convey the sense of smell other than just visual and audio. This will definitely bring food blogging to a totally new dimension, but I guess you’d also get a lot of gag blogs – fart posts anyone?
- solar/nuclear/kinetic power – wouldn’t it be nice to have a notebook with power source that can last as long as a calculator?
- built in projector – webcams are now pretty much a standard feature on notebooks, but I’d really love to see a projector on the laptop, doesn’t need to be a very strong nor powerful one, it’ll be really neat.
Lenovo ideapad U350
Since we can’t have those yet, the laptop I’m using now, the Lenovo ideapad U350 is actually very nifty. It’s got an Intel Centrino processor, HDMI output for entertainment, and an active protection system for the hard disk to prevent accidental shocks. This thing is pretty light too.
