Morphos Genesi has announced its Open Server Workstation: "The Open Server Workstation is a six layer board with two 970MP processors, the CPC945 and Broadcom's HT-1000 and 2000 chips. Excepting those parts, the board and component cost is below USD 200. Here is the Business Plan [.pdf] we wrote for the board."

Isn't a "server workstation" a bit of an oxymoron?

Anyway, I'd like to see a laptop from Genesi.

Well, were talking about a workstation. As far as I know noone has ever produced a laptop workstation. Correct me in case I am wrong.

"Well, were talking about a workstation. As far as I know noone has ever produced a laptop workstation. Correct me in case I am wrong."

Alienware produce an opteron based "mobile workstation", IBM produce a core 2 duo workstation, I believe so do Dell.

Basically, notebooks with desktop parts.

Apple could have done this with the G5, that said, the resultant laptop would not have been the slim, slick low heat package we'd come to know and love...

Oh wait..
