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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
