Your input for the perfect computer!

Many here will know me as the 'newbie' to the Amiga, but I''m the long time
knowledgeable (just agree with me) user of the Asmtrad CPC and runs a online
magazine called 'CPC Oxygen' at which is totally free to
view online anda lso contains past issues of Amstrad Action (with permission
from Future publishing).

What does this got to do with the Amiga?

Well, we are currently working on a new article for the next issue (Summer
03) discussing what would be the perfect computer, in terms of operating
system, hardware, design, style, price etc. with current or near-future
technology etc and we like to get the input from as many users of
alternative computers as possible.

We're looking for anything from full blown thousand words essay to just a
few lines or even a graphical drawing. Even just an innovative idea (such as
having the OS on a ROM cart, with only drivers and other modifications
located on hard drive, allowing for easy upgrade and reducing piracy) wpuld
be great. Basically anything you want.

It you that decides what direction the article takes, perhaps the perfect
computer is already with us, if so why?

So basically any input would be great :-)

Once the article is put together it will pit not only onto the next issue of
CPC Oxygen but any other online magazine/website/publication that request it
(as long as credits remains) as it will be of interest to many fans of
alternative computing.

Forward your ideas, text, drawings to XXXX@XXXXX.COM

I must say, that is the weirdest computer I ever heard! ;-) but I do like
the pressure sensitive cursor control keys and the 10 USB ports. Totally
wacky, but I'll liek to include some of it in the article if you don't mind.

Quick, somebody email us their perfect computer before Amishman35 model
willtake over the computing world!!!


turned off
so you
man. If

You are welcome to use my ideas for the perfect computer.

Oh, and put a headphone jack with powerful volume control on the front of the
case, so you can listen to MOD files after dark.

A couple of wierd ideas:

- Equip the keys of the keyboard with little LCD displays such that if
I change the keypad, the wording on the keys change.

- Make the screen a touchpad controlling the pointer. (Computers like that
are already available).

- Use a standard casing and connector to the outside of the computer case
to allow upgrading the components by plugging them "onto" the system. The
"base case" and extensions should have a similar form-factor, allowing you
to build a "computer tower" including the components you need, making the
system more modular than common systems are today.

An Amiga One, if they ever get around to producing one.

I've had one in my hands, but it was poorly-made and did not work. Eyetech
seem to claim otherwise, despite it quite clearly miswired power connectors.
Naturally, I now particularly distrust anything they say.

I'm currently in the process of preparing to sue Eyetech for the return of
the money I paid for it.

My AmigaOne-XE G4 933MHz 512MB Eyetech-built system is on it's way to me
now (and about 1 hour away according to UPS tracking :-) :-) :-)
