x86/ARM Laptop in tandem! Dell has done it before!
Not only would two microarchitectures working in unison as a chimera be able to take control of adantages between the two, but also allow for extremely easy cross-platform development. ARM's power-saving and economy have let it be in our phones and now servers, so why not include a SoC in the Sputnik? It would allow for very mobile ARM development with no power expense of emulation.
Come on, Dell. You've done it before. The Latitude E4200 was one of my favorite laptops, ahead of it's time.
Replacing a full-size drive with an ARM SoC + flash memory has been demonstrated by CUPP Computing, but they're a tiny company having trouble getting the product to market. Dell can easily out a laptop with one, considering that they've done it before.
Please help me send this message to Dell. I'm not some schmuck who thinks this will help him create the next Angry Birds. I'm a person who has had a lifelong interest in computing, and wishes to make computing more efficient.
