Nicholas Negroponte wrote a great book several years ago on digital media called Being Digital. GF commends it to you. One of the best quotes from the book that has always stuck in the memory was:
"Move digits not atoms".

Update:See this Q&A from Negroponte and these images of the laptop.

**One wonders what Microsoft will do to try and rubbish this and stifle its uptake.
