If its lifetime is to be of the same length as the Compy's, the Lappy is due to be replaced sometime around email 201. Even though that's still quite far off, it might be fun to post predictions of what SB's next computer will be.

My idea: Penty 95, with a primitive GUI.

I doubt it, Strong Bad isn't into the new computer styles...

Personally, I doubt Homestar Runner will go on long enough for a fourth computer to come into play. I think TBC will quit after email 200, although possibly even before that. TBC can't do this forever!

I was hoping that at some point :sb: got something like a Commodore 64-esque computer, but I guess that the Compy 386 is gonna be the closest thing to a C64 we are gonna see. I doubt that there will be another laptop. maybe he will get something apple... who knows...

Maybe, the Lappy is here to stay...

no, his first computer was a tandy, and although the logo looked very apple-esque, it was more like an early tandy computer. rather, it seems like a cross between the trs-80 series and the 1000 series, because a 500 model doesnt exist. when I said apple, I was thinking along the lines of how an apple ][ looks, if anything

He'll get a Linux machine. Maybe Ubuntu.

What about some top of the line next-get gaming computer? Like some advanced Alienware. Video game trouble would be hilarious.

I can't believe how long some of these Homestar additions have been around. Main Page 23 since September 2005? The Lappy since November 2004? No way! Both of those still come off as relatively new to me. Anyways, if Strong Bad were to get a new computer, it would be less advanced than the Lappy. I would like to see the Block make another appearance.

I think that the Cheat will get his old computer back and give it to :sb: .

He did get a new iMac style computer, what did he do with the old one?

I wrote a fic where Strong Sad destroyed it by pouring melonade into it.

Maybe The Cheat just decided to upgrade?

Perhaps a high end 486. Early to MId 90's 3D such as 4D Boxing,Stunts, Alone In The Dark...

Mind your that's when I was at University and Street Fighter II was my game of choice..

Regardless it'll take the Bros. Chaps flash skills to a new level.. :)

It'd be a shame to say goodbye to the CLIs of old but an upgrade over the Lappy's "several" colour video would take better advantage of the New Paper's broad colour spectrum!

I have a feeling that the Lappy will stay for a very long time, much longer than the others.

As long as the brothers enjoy it, they'll probably be doing it until they're old. 200 emails isn't that far away anyway. I'm sure we'll see 200 at least. 300? 1000? 10,000!? Probably not. But hopefully something like 250 at least.

Anyway, on topic I think it might be cool to see him get a computer with a mouse one day (a primitive one of course). It would break the tradition, but it would be funny to see him struggling to use it and having to call in The Cheat for help and get a lot of blue screens of death. =P

I think Strong Bad will get a windows 98'...
But shortly there after (about 10 to 15 emails) he'll get a free AOL sign up CD that will slowly start to destroy the homestarrunner universe. That is untill homestar does something stupid to it and blows it up and then strong bad will just use the lappy again.

EVERYBODY WINS! :mrgreen:

He needs a Windows Vista Alienware. Then he can start trying to buy ALL the games he missed.

I'm rooting for some kind of Persocom parody. That'd be an otaku's dream come true.

I can't help but wonder if the lappy won't get replaced after all. What else could he upgrade it to? If the lappy DID die...would the sbemails die with it? Maybe SB won't want a new one after that and thus end the SBemails. It seems like a possible way for TBC to end them.

Not that I WANT them to...it's just a thought.

A "what if..?" if you will.

1st: Be careful when you're typing next time.
2nd: I'm glad somebody's making a reference to Accent, the bonus email.
3rd: There's really no telling if it'll be in 5 years, I mean it's on the same DVD as emails 131-160, so could the bonus email have been made, but not released, in late 2005 or somewhere in 2006? Who knows?
