To Whom It May Concern


My question is laptop creator said they wanted to build laptop so that they can save energy and be wireless but my thing how we suppose to go wireless with the laptop when the laptops til got a plug so you can charge it. Why don't ya'll just build a laptop that hold a charge about six months or more and let the battery be recyclable. Why don't they build a laptop with a small router build inside it so that you can always carry your laptop around where ever you go. you can email me at matthewbarnes0609@yahoo.com thank you

Might as well go nuclear for batteries, as far as router, there are wireless cards, just not free.

First of all, you should not be displaying your email in your posts, unless you enjoy getting lots of spam.

Second of all, asking for a battery that will last six months is asking way too much.....

Lastly, you could always get a GSM chipset for your laptop for 3G access whereever you go, that is if that is what you are talking about.

@ badazz0609, join the rest of the wishfull thinkers...six months?
Let's look at the evolution, here. The power increases (exponentially) every so once in a while, the more of that, the more juice you'll need.
How many times per year do you change the batteries of the tv remote? Compare that to the power consumption of a laptop...

Well you can technically configure your laptop for use as a router, it won't be a very good one (limited ports) but it can still be done. And you can't just build a battery that will last for 6 months, that's just silly :P

You started off well by demonstrating in the subject that you know when to use 'whom', but your written language skills degenerate quite quickly after that.
