The future of computing

I’ve felt for a long time that we’re well overdue for a new type of personal computer paradigm, but I’m not that sure whether the Antelope MCC is it. Based on a concept developed by IBM, this small box – or Mobile Computer Core – contains nothing more than the processor (Crusoe), a 10GB hard disk, 256 MB of memory, a graphics card and battery.

The idea is that you load up your choice of operating system and it will automagically configure itself to whatever peripherals it finds when you dock it. It’s an interesting idea, but will it fly? Or is it destined to end up in the Apple Newton historical dumpster of pain?
