The dream has been there for a long time, and many have attempted to do it. Even big players like Motorola, Ubuntu and Asus with their PadPhone.

The ICE xPC weighs just 4 oz and is so small that it fits in your shirt pocket. It can be docked into peripherals that transform it into the intelligent core of a pad, notebook, desktop, or gaming device. The xPC is built for performance and includes a high-performance motherboard, the latest x86 CPU/chipset, 4G RAM, 64-128G SSD, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module, Bluetooth, an accelerometer and a camera.
