Technical specifications have just been released for the supposed $1-million laptop. It will feature a 17-inch LED backlit display, 128GB HDD, and a slot-loading Blu-ray disc drive.

This device sports an OLED display and is powered by blue methyl alcohol fuel instead of a regular lithium-ion battery.
