The ultimate laptop looks like a thermonuclear explosion? If only! There's lots of actual organized matter in that (e.g. it's not all monatomic hydrogen plasma so there's order in the nuclei). It's more like the aftermath of a total annihilation reaction: a blast of elementary particles and wide-spectrum (mostly high-energy) radiation, all, of course, precisely positioned so that it interacts neatly. The engineering challenges involved in building this thing are significant :) and how you do I/O I have not the least idea. I imagine you'd need smaller computers to mediate between the ultimate laptop and anything else. This is post-Transcend stuff ;} (Oh, and, er, why does this need to be on a kernel hacker's bookshelf exactly? I know the life of a Linux kernel hacker is an exciting and never-ending whirl, but I didn't think it was *this* exciting.)
