Means that for each assembly, down to component level, the materials
would have to be determined, along with the expected outgas, and then
compared against a food safety standard.  We might have to start
several new production processes for components in order to meet
standards for edibility and kitchen equipment safety.

I estimate the cost per laptop would rise by a factor of 1000 or so.

I'm sorry, but we cannot afford this kind of ideal.
