Why haven't they made a form factor like that of older computers? It would save space and you could just place a keyboard on top of it.
Because the more stuff you shove on a product, the more likely are you to alienate people.
You could strap a toothbrush to a dildo but if people don't like both the products they won't buy the packet.
Because if you want a desktop-netbook you can get a far smaller form factor than that.
Kinda wish more 'just a keyboard stick it in the TV to get a screen' things existed, though.
I also liked that form factor but stop crying about it, All-in-one are obviously more space saving and you don't kill it if you spit on the keyboard.
The performances doesn't depend on the form factor, this is fucking 2015.
I mean, headless laptops are a thing.
You could also build a cyberdeck if you want to be a huge nerd.

you mean like this? :^)
Cosplay? LARP? Hacking the Gibson?
There probably isn't one.
Just take the screen off of a laptop.
I like this form factor, it would be fun to just hook it up to every monitor I can find.
But then again, it seems a deprecated form factor, the only way would be to custom build a computer like this.
You could also just tape a miniPC to the back of your monitor and plug in a mechanical keyboard.
It's not fashionable right now. There are (m)ATX boards for towers, mini ITX you can stick to the back of a monitor, and even smaller toy computers. It looks "cleaner" to have the desk clear of everything except the keyboard, mouse, and speakers.
this is basically the modern equivalent
lel, there's a standard for attaching shit to the back of a monitor (well, it was originally for attaching the monitor to shit, but whatever)
Man, not to sound like a fanboy, but at its max buoyancy era Sony was able to pump out a lot of conceptually/aesthetically amazing shit, beautiful ideas for the sake of it sometimes... but why doesn't a company like Apple (drowning on a amount of profits never seen by any other CE company ever) let their engineers indulge in a bigger variety of vanity or pet-projects like those anymore?
A headless laptop is a computer case with a keyboard on it, which is exactly what you're fucking looking for you dumb retard.
Get a bigger fucking laptop if the size is that important to you.
