Hardware, Embedded Systems Most netbooks and laptops are bland and boring, with none of them having any unique selling points that make them stand out from the crowd. Every now and then, however, a device comes along that looks like any other, but comes with something special that makes it stand out. The Sharp Mebius is one of those netbooks: it comes with an LCD touchpad.

alas, that was the first thing that came to my mind, as well.

but, speaking of the DSi, this would make a very interesting platform for emulating the DS/DSi. considering the placement of the trackpad/touchscreen, it might make a DS emulator a bit closer to the real thing. all legality issues aside, it's a fun thought.
