Since it will be running Linux it will be the equivalent of a 2 GHz
machine thats running windows, right? :)

Have to agree w/the above - Laptops components haven't reached the 
same level of interchangability as desktop components.

They will be someday, but by then, I suspect that we will all be using some
kind of almost disposable ( < $150 ) portable computing device.

Our father, which art in Redmond, Monopoly be thy name.
Thy empire come, thy OS never done, shipping as it is in development 

Give us this day, our daily bug And forgive address violations
as we forgive those viruses that trespass against us

Lead us not unto competition but deliver us from Choice
For thine is the license, the revenue and the greed forever. Amen

Linux and Open Source.  The New Base.  

Now All your base belongs to you, for free, for ever.
