SB should try to make his own computer, but then that won't work, and he gives it to Homestar to do hremails. Then he steals the Corpy, and renames it the "Super Compy (insert random number here)."

He'll probably use an early Windows. A very glitchy one. I really don't see him using anything better than the Lappy, or moving back to a desktop, but if he eventually upgrades, that might be it. So... the name? It's probably something ending in -y, like the rest. Something ridiculous like Boxy? I dunno.

Or it could just be the Zappy XT6. :3

I don't see it happening any time soon.
There was a huge technology jump and still stayed out of date. From the Tandy to the Compy 386. Which gave him VGA graphics and the like. The Compy to the Lappy was a smaller upgrade. Just being the fact it was a laptop made it interesting. Any upgrade will bring it to close to a new computer.
FYI: The Compy and the Lappy can run Windows 3.1 quite well. The Lappy may be able to do Windows 95, although quite slowly. But Windows 95 as for as a GUI has brought us most of the stuff we are use to in modern computers. So I don't see a new computer any time soon. Giving Strong Bad a new Computer will not acheave much. As the loosing computer gag is kinda old.

I have no idea what he would upgrade it to but I'm definitely ready for him to replace his lappy. It's been on the site longer than any other of his computers! The real question is...how and why? :mrgreen:

forget all y'all --- Strong Bad's getting a Dell (more canon-like... a Bell), one of the early "lappy"tude series

the Bell Lappytude (equivilant to a Dell Latitude CP M166ST) with Screens 95

How long ago was this forum posted? sbemail 200 is already out! And yes, i think it is THE LAST. SBEMAIL. EVER.

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.

If you didnt notice at the end of email thunder where it has all the emails after email thunder it has "..." so pretty much they are saying that there is going to be more. :) :p

How about a Wii with the internet channel?

That'd be humorous for one email since taking 10 minutes to type a sentence is only funny once.

My idea: The Cheaty 500,straight from the ingenious mind of :cheat:,who programmed it, :bubs: who thought of the design and :ehsteve: was responsible for the sounds!

-Multiple color monitor! (Better than the Lappy!)
-2 GB RAM! (Yay... :eekdance: )
-Even classier startup noise! (Eh! Steve recorded it,so you know what to expect ;) )
-Comes with an SUPER ULTRA GAME PACK WITH ALL THE TROGDOR GAMES! :trogdor:
-All of Strong Bad's "defunct" games that don't work on the Lappy work on the Cheaty! :-D
-Has an email filter that blocks email from :hr: and :kot: .
-And that's I guess it...I'll try to think of more ideas. :)

What about a "Vindows Wista*" or something. Whenever every e-mail starts, he wouldn't know how to work it, and something funny would happen! But, it would get boring, so the computer should die quickly.

* Windows Vista spin-off, not a misspelling...

Maybe :cheat: could make something for him to use, but knowing :cheat: , he'd probably make it way too hard for :sb: to understand...

The Dumby 30XA (X pronounced by SB Xty)
Speculations:
One unit!
Green OR amber screen!
Return of the green(amber) lines!
Not actually dumb
3 optional fonts!
No more shaking keyboards, one unit again!
By Tandy

His would be Amber, so it wouldn't be too much like the Tandy.
(based on the Lear-Siegler ADM 3A

Maybe :sb: can sneak into :hr: 's hremail room & steal his really awesome computer & replace it with his Lappy (sorry, buddy). Then Homestar kills the Lappy trying to make it work like the other hremail computer.

Canpo 490,with horrible features.

For one,it has a battery life but it is not a laptop.
To annoy Strong Bad,the start up noise is These peoples try to fade me.
It is advertised as DOS but it is an OS.DOS mode gets turned on.
Also,it will only save email adresses made on The canpo.So Strong Bad needs to wait until next week to check an email.

Of course,it will need to be a short because Strong Bad does not check an email.

Transcript later.

Plausibility one: An old slate PC. Great for gorilla arm jokes.


Plausibility two:
Something like this "ultra light" laptop:

But with a "waterproof, rugged" membrane keyboard like this:
