Ha. That really rocks.

I'm saving up for a cheaper Tesla model (or used Model S) in 2017. If my Audi makes it that long. The automatic transmission sometimes forgets which gear it's in, and can't shift anymore. As Teslas are single gear-direct drive, they don't have that problem.

You're making it more complex than it is.

You can get parts for anything and still get it fixed. If there is a market. You have no point.

There are no laws that require dealers to stock 20 years old parts. You have no point.

Tesla doesn't ban service on their cars. You have no point.

If many Teslas are sold, there will be a market for parts. You have no point.

If you buy a Tesla and there are a million of those Teslas sold, you will be able to get service. Even if it's not from Tesla. You have no point.

I have a NUC in my study. Zero noise.

My HTPC is a 17W Xeon (want ECC) E3-1220L v2. I keep the drive array inside a wooden cabinet, along with my UPS. So almost no noise from this one either.

For my fun toy computers, I have a few SGIs, which are a great blast-from-the-past in reminding me what computer used to be like.

But I'll never buy a new, high-wattage, loud computer again. 20W and less, for me!
