Good points.  In my case, I'm planning to use an ipod which has a hard 
drive (I think?) so this should be less of an issue (but clearly we're 
not going to be raising the benchmarks on any kind of performance 
metric).  Interesting idea on the mini hitatchi drives.  How long is it 
until we have "computer on a stamp" that we just need to carry with us 
and plug into a "host"?

Can VMWare be run without being "installed" in the host computer?
