What if you are hard at work, wasting your time on the internet, and fancy some slices of nice cheese. Ordinarily you would have to go to the kitchen to retrieve the utensils but with the laptop chopping board simply close the computer, withdraw the appropriate knife (bread, cheese, carving etc) from its slot next to the CD drive, and chop away to your heart's content on the natural hardwood surface attached to the top of the laptop. Brush off the crumbs, open the computer and munch while you browse.

       Where do you keep the cheese?
pertinax, Aug 12 2007
  

       Do you load the bread one slice at a time? It would be more trouble than it's worth I think, but welcome to the halfbakery.

       The cheese is in the fridge. The bread is in the breadbin. The pickles, should you desire them, are in a jar on the shelf. Next to the Marmite.

       Thank you, [Beep]; exactly my point.   

       ...but welcome anyway, [it's a stick].

       I keep my fridge (and therefore the cheese) in the living room. To hell with the bread and pickles.

       I still don't get it. If you have to go get the bread and cheese, then why don't you just get the knife at the same time? I thought your idea implied that the bread and cheese were also in the slot of the laptop...

       At home, wouldn't pets constantly try and lick the back of your laptop while working? This may be tough to explain if someone walks in.

       It takes my laptop as long to startup from sleep from closing as it does to get a knife and cutting board from the kitchen.

       This could be an interesting new way to cool your laptop. This requires deeper thought.....

       A laptop toaster would be cool.

       Why not just network your breadboard? then you can seamlessly browse the internet on your networked fridge door and networked microwave oven and toughened glass webbed-board. It could display alternative sandwich ideas as you slice and provide an ordering service for the ingredients.

       This makes about as much sense as a lawnmower toaster. bone.

       Can you chop vegetables on it with a heavy cleaver?

       [global], in Windows XP, in Control Panel, in Power Options, there's a setting that allows you to change what the laptop does when you close it. Shut Down, Sleep, Standby, Do Nothing, Make A Cup Of Tea. I propose that with the bread board laptop one of the latter options is used.
