Eff this noise, I want an electric Miata-like or MR2-like sports car. Cheap, cheerful, open roof, minimum safety hardware required by law, and fun to drive, if not the fastest thing in the world.

Thinkpad X220. Under $100 on EBay these days. Pop in a $50 256GB solid-state drive. More rugged than most Dells, and it has a nipple-mouse, which is better than a trackpad (IMHO).

I didn't expect a dryer to be so overdesigned.
