What Am I MIssing?

I have a several year old emergency Cobra Power Inverter that produces 1.5 KW continuous and 3 KW peak for $150. It is 2.5" x 9" x 8" = 180 cubic inches. My ordinary laptop is 0.75" x 13" x 10" = 98 cubic inches. It seems like we were close already with a higher power unit. [I'm not sure where the 40 cubic inch laptop came from, is it a netbook?]

Thanks. I appreciate your response. I'm sure you not jaded. I was just testing your resolve (and also fishing for more information.). That's what I like our readers...you call out the impossible or, at least the improbable.

@Susan....

I've been in power supplies and lighting electronics my whole career. And, I might be jaded about this to the extent that my practicality and experience outweighs my imagination. I think not though. This sounds to me like someone at a big corporation that is making up this stuff in a complete vacuum. I could be wrong; however, that is how it appears to me.

Oh, come on! Where is your imagination? (you think it's impossible?)  But if you could do this, why would you want to sign over the rights to Google.
