I'm not sure where this should go, so feel free to move it.

Okay, so I have an idea for a sort of network computer. (I do not have the time to do this so I don't care if you try it) What you have is one main computer tower (a really good one) and then you buy a touch screen about the size of a tablet computer and hook it up wirelessly to the main tower via wi-fi. Then you have a password on the tower and you have a small portable tablet that has the resources of a full computer. You could also connect them via internet, or you could build a huge computer and put it in a business.

That's my idea, what do you think?

That sounds similar to the gaming service called OnLive, but I do believe it is possible to have this sort of setup.

I believe the technical term for this is a thin client (wikipedia entry) and it is very possible. Its just a pain in the butt to set up as far as I know. If you were looking for more stuff to research I remember conceptualizing a lot of things like this, I remember clusters were one thing I was looking into. Also old mainframes used to work exactly like this. Well, back in whatever days they were all computers worked like this.

Edit: Err a cluster is kind of the reverse of what we were talking about but its cool to read about nonetheless.
