So look at the feature list for this prototype device from Macrocomm: Touch screen, VoIP, HDTV, dual-booting Linux and Windows, 5.1 sound, and... a corded phone handset. They're building the device to go into hotels and hospitals and dorms—anyplace people need a do-all machine in a small space. Personally, I'd say that's what big laptops are for, but they've got me on one count—they're saying they can produce and retail this device for $850 a pop.
