Market?

As I was saying on Facebook, I'm not quite sure there's a market for this, but perhaps it can create its own niche. It all depends on the price. I'm thinking sub-$200 would be good here, though who knows.

There has been a seller of zero footprint PC's built into oversized keyboards for a number of years now, but they were still desktop PC's. This one has an ~4 hour battery and a wireless breakout box, so it's decidedly more portable, with some interesting potential uses. Obviously it's not quite a laptop (no screen) and not quite a desktop (it's mostly portable and self-sustaining, save for a screen). I'll be very curious how this develops, though power-wise it seems to err more on the side of a netbook or nettop than a traditional PC, so it's usage as say as a media center PC may be limited.

That is a very 80's design.

That is a very 80's design. Not that it's a bad thing... some people will take one look and know they want one.
