My vision of truly personal portable computing is coming a bit closer.

Aha. Mobile computing core (MCC). Just a couple of days ago I wrote about Migo . Now, from John Robb I see a link to Antelope Technologies computing core:

The MCC is like a desktop computer contained within a 3" x 5" x 1" (7.62 x 12.7 x 2.54cm) device — about the same size as a PDA or laptop battery. Low power consumption makes it ideal for portable applications, and it does not need a fan. It automatically identifies, and adapts to, attached devices. Its operating system, power management, thermal, software and user interface behavior will automatically match your attached accessory.

The MCC runs the full Windows XP? Professional operating system, so when you plug it into your current desktop or handheld, you’ll be using the same user interface and applications. It makes possible a broad range of mobile, fixed location, industrial and non-traditional computing experiences.

More specifically, the Mobile Core runs on a 1GHz Transmeta processor with 256MB of RAM and up to 15GB hard drive. It contains a bunch of USB, VGA, and other ports. For more complete specs click here. I am really looking forward to seeing how this is going to take off (or not)
