Remember that computers halve in size every 18 months or so.
This curve's been pretty steady for 40 years now, so guessing
is not necessary. According to Carl Feynman at TMC, you'll have 
your laptop CM around the year 2000. It'll just dissipate 200 watts
- think of it as a combination filofax/hairdryer.
