Hi:

Would a computer designed to use high-voltage [around 10,000 volts],
low-wattage [around 0.000001 watt] have any advantage over conventional
computers?

It'd be much more resistant to electrostatic damage

This is one advantage I am looking for.

but at one microwatt
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.

In this system, the voltage is high but the amperage is *extremely*
low.

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

Bye.
