If you could have the money and the resources to design your perfect laptop, how that laptop will be?
>3:2 OLED or IPS at 4095x2730 15.4"
>Magnesium Alloy body
>a traditional 7-Row keyboard, but with the switches of the Lenovo Y900, spill proof of course
>A design so modular that you only need to undo six screws to get to the motherboard out of the shell, without the need to take apart the keyboard
Literally, I want a sort of Chromebook Pixel with Thinkpad fusion.
What do you want /g/?
Just give me this with modern internals, including Thunderbolt 3, and an IPS screen.
>AMOLED 1080p screen.
>Magnesium alloy body
>HHKB keyboard layout
>Use extra space for front facing speakers
>Thinkpad track point
>Mac touchpad with dedicated buttons
>9 cell battery using Panasonic 3400mah cells
>Two piece design - take off shell, take out mobo
>100% Linux compatibility
>A dock that accepts PCI-E GPUs
1440 or 2160p OLED screen
at least 4 usb3 ports, 1-2 usb C
12 amp-hour or greater battery
Can you tell I just travel with my laptop, instead of taking it from place to place?
>multisided with one being e-ink the other being AMOLED
>minimal key travel
6x USB type c, with the stipulation that everything is compatible with it
coreboot or similar
>2x on-the-fly-replaceable batteries
>has a stylus for writing
>can get fast internet from satellites
>Water cooling with radiator docking station that up clocks the CPU
>Positive internal pressure airflow with easy to remove and clean dust filters at the intakes
>Thick design with easy to replace parts/fans and clean
>Battery compartment away from the CPU/GPU
>Battery that can be set to 80% charge
>Multiple battery compartments so you can scale up the life if needed or reduce it to save weight
>Fit more than 2 sticks of RAM
>Multiple HDD slots
>Vertical screen rotation
>10/40 Gbps Ethernet port
Probably like a 14 inch 3:2 IPS screen with whatever resolution looks right with exactly 2:1 scaling. Maybe with touch, why not.
Quad core i7, 16GB of RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD, decent mobile graphics card, maybe a GTX 1060M or GTX 1070M
Basically a Macbook Pro keyboard but with a Windows layout (tux key though for super) and F keys bound to F by default, have to hold fn for second function.
Again, basically a Macbook Pro trackpad.
At least 2 USB Type A ports, drop down Ethernet, couple USB Type C ports, HDMI, SD card slot, combined mic/headphone port
Stereo, high quality, big strip on either side of the keyboard.
Hardware buttons or switches to enable/disable webcam and mic, finger print scanner (good one, like modern phones), ability for the screen hinge to go completely flat, built in WiFi would also have the ability to act as a hotspot, swappable batteries with a small internal battery so you could swap without shutting down.
It would be completely flat on the top and bottom, one row of rubber foot going across the top and bottom edge on the bottom of the laptop, completely flat sides with slightly rounded corners. All black with an Apple-esque glowing logo in the bottom right of the lid (when looking at it from the outside) that was the terminal logo: >_ or $_
That's about it.
>take Macbook 12"
>make it Macbook 12,5" ... or simply make the current bezels thinner
>lower screen resolution to 1920x1200
>in turn lower the size of the battery and make it thinner
>add 1TB NVMe SSD
>wait for Koby Lake version of Core M, put it in
>under an inch thick
>Thinkpad durability and internal rollcage
>Magsafe-like power cord
>Lots of I/O
>BIOS as default
>Airflow from rMBP
>Multiple mSATA slots
>12.1" 1440p 16:10 screen
>2048 levels of pressure sensitivity with stylus
Keyboard and touchpad
>touchpad that can be turned off with a hardware switch on the side of the laptop
>dGPU with external GPU support
>100% hardware linux compatibility
>I dont have any faith on the X62, bro. Their last project, a T60/T61 with a first gen core i5 couldn't basic laptop things like control backlight and suspend.
Both work fine on mine.
