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, but at one microwatt
probably not very fast.

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.
