      Or the "long battery life" champion of all time, the HP Portable Plus
      (recharge every 4-5 days in regular use).

      The "execute in place" technology of the early Omnibooks was really
      cool. The PCcard "ROM" in the 300 and 425 held Windows 3.1 code that was
      not copied to RAM to execute. This saved both disk space and RAM.
      Unfortunately both became cheap (did I say that?) so EIP never caught
      on. Those machines may not be all that old, but they are vintage none
      the less!
