Morphos "SceneCON is an annual meeting of underground computer artists who are members of the famous demo scene. With SceneCON, the organizers aim to follow the two decade old tradition of demo scene parties in Hungary. Yet, with a bit of a twist. This years party was held from the 16th until the 17th of June, 2007. Among its highlights was an extensive demonstration of bplan's EFIKA miniature mainboard running various flavours of Linux as well as a work-in-progress version of MorphOS 2.0. Luckily, the presentation was captured on video. The entire presentation has a total length of nearly an hour with MorphOS 2.0 being featured in the last 14 minutes of it."

There are not many fanless VIA CPUs available. When
that big myth started a few years ago there was only
one fanless board available; EPIA 5000, 533 MHz. 533
very slow MHz which equaled to somewhere around P2
266 MHz.. The 800 MHz version had a noisy 40 mm fan.

They also have a pretty fat heatsink, much thicker than
any laptop you can purchase today.

That's why temperature-controlled CPU fans are totally
necessary in every new laptop.

Jos van den Oever has a DELL laptop with a passively cooled 1.2 ghz Celeron, so it's possible to have no CPU fan AND decent performance already. And have a look at this page, VIA's proc's up to 1.5 ghz run fanless: http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/ultra_mobile/ultra_mobile.jsp
