    Any communication away from home or office, for which no wires are connected to an unmovable object.

    Thats a...silly(?) assignment?
    Overpriced and weak, is my definition, i've also not needed a laptop/mobile computing device yet so.

    Agree with raybay, but would add an attempt to minimize weight.

    That's a personal point, since a 5.5 lb laptop really gave me back aches, and I really didn't need all that computing power away from home or office.

    I would also add that "communication" is not necessarily part of the definition. There are many situations that require mobile computing, but don't require internet access.

    Mobile Computing: Any situation involving the use of a portable computing device with a self-contained power supply.

    I couldn't Agree more, it becomes even more saddening when mobile technology is used to make an All-In-One PC, Like the Gateway One (Which I'm using).
