Why I would like a PC that uses high-voltage, normal-wattage, and low-amperage.

This is one advantage I am looking for.

probably not very fast.
What about if the wattage is the same as that used by most computers?
Just for the fun of it, I would like each circuit of each component of
my PC to run at a wattage similar to that of those in normal PCs.
However the required voltage for each of those circuits should be
1,000,000,000,000 volts. No longer do I have to worry about static
frying the computer chips.

so low that thermal expansion changing its capacitance would cause problems.
