Default Portable Hardrives???

I would like to know, today I went to a real estate agency and I saw a computer it looked like a portable harddrive but it had all the hookups for a moniter and internet and keyboard, everything. I would like to know where they got this, what it is called, how much it it costs.

To me it sounds like Web TV or something around that mark, probualy what it is. It is used for searching the web, does that sound right?

No I don't think so it was just a computer without a floppy or a cdrom drive. I am pretty sure it had an OS on it but it was small like a portable hard drive and was made by HP

Yeah there Mini Mac pc's and there damn small

Its just apple trying to get more sales by making there systems smaller
there apparently ok but i havnt heard too much about them but u hafta admit its a pretty kool concept a computer which can fit in your pocket

I heard a while ago about glasses to go with the tiny computer
A tiny projector sends an image to a 1 lence glass(es?) and the image is show but im not sure how your supposed to be able to write maybe a tiny keyboard

But the Moniter Glass(es?) might be used for DvD in the near future (maybe)
