With my current 11 inch laptop, pretty much the only things I can do with it is word processing and simple browsing. There isn't much you can do with a single core of 700 mhz. This computer makes up 1/3 of my needs, mobile computing.
The new rig I'm ordering parts for should be able to swallow my laptop whole with six cores of 3.2 ghz. This rig will make up 2/3s of my needs, performance. At least, I hope I have the money soon.
Until then, no Flash, no YouTube, no Fruity Loops, no multitasking with 384MB of RAM, no anything! I mean it takes almost 30 seconds to load up WMP, and another 5 seconds to start a song, and I barely have anything on the 30GB hard drive!
Oh cry, oh sob, oh woe upon me.
