This is very interesting! I hadn't considered laptops but now I will.
Does anyone else have experience with running linux on a laptop?
Can I hook up my parallel-port ZIP drive to a laptop?
Can I hook up my monitor? My keyboard? My mouse?
If I keep the laptop plugged in the whole time is the battery simply 
ignored, or does it slowly drain or leak acid over the years? Note I
have no intention of using this putative laptop anywhere other than my
desk, but it would be really exciting to have one! Last I checked the
displays were getting pretty good too, so maybe I could junk my monitor 
while I'm at it. What are some good display technologies, anyone have
experience sitting up all night staring at an lcd screen? Can you still see?
