Let's found up an "attila-foundation" for sponsoring you a new laptop ;-)
(Well, I personally could ask my suppliers for a good offer, since I'm
also trading w/ hardware ... ;-) )

Hmm, perhaps we could think about project funding in more general ways.
Some of my customers already asked my for doing quite a lot of work on
OSS-projects, but at the end it was too expensive for only one customer.

So such an 'open' funding for opensource projects could be interesting:
Many people may offer donation for a specific job. And if there's enough
money in the pot, someone will do the job and getting the money.
We also have some experiences with this in some medical forums.

Okay, it gets off-topic, so i'll stop here for now :)
