Little wonder

New Scientist reports that a Colorado based start-up is going to launch what is possibly the world's smallest full-featured PC, the MCC (Modular Computing Core).
The device is a single portable unit into which all the essential computing components are crammed. At 76 by 127 by 19 millimetres (5 x 3 x 3/4 inches), the MCC is not much bigger than a deck of cards.

nside the MCC is a 1GHz microprocessor, 256 MB of RAM and a 10 or 15 GB hard drive. It will also run a full version of Microsoft's XP operating system, instead of the stripped-down operating systems used by handheld computers.
And, what would you have to shell out to go in for such a hybrid device? Almost $4000!!!
