hence why i'm doing these two CPU cards first. space is veery tight,
so it's pretty much going to need a complete custom casework
design.... per CPU. that's about $10k just for the casework.

i see no reason why a tiny laptop using EOMA68 should not be made.
it'd have to be about 20mm thick, but could easily be something like
95 x 70mm.
screen: 3.5mm, PCMCIA holder: 6mm. PCB: 2mm. case back: 1.5mm
keyboard: 2mm. case top: 1.5mm. components: 2mm max height.
battery: 3mm. comes to 21mm - ok, maybe pushing it.
