Bigger? no. Better, who knows?

There's been a lot of interest lately in smaller computer systems, tailored to one purpose or another, rather than the make-it-bigger, make-it-faster, generic systems we've come to expect.

I'm thinking in particular about projects like One Laptop Per Child, and systems like the Asus EEE PC (which I'm seriously considering for myself!) or the Aleutia E1.

Maybe we're heading away from the how-much-can-I-do-with-a-computer mentality and towards what-do-I-need-a-computer-for? Needs-based computing?
