Aleutia's 4.5 inch E1 could be a good indicator of the future of computers. It's a solar-powered Linux and runs on 8 watts of power. It has no moving parts and is totally silent. The optional solar panel will add slightly to the low $400 price tag. Even though it has relatively small storage and ram, with computing moving more online and using flash memory, this computer could have lots of applications.
