Cool What ever happened to the "smallest computer in the world"?

I can remember this tiny little computer from years ago that fit into a shirt pocket and you plugged stuff into it. Whatever happened to that thangie?! I'd like to get one and put Linux on it.

Seriously, the latest Zaurus is pretty much a palm-top computer than a PDA... It has a something like a 4 GB hard drive...

My current Palm m130, while out of date, is still more powerful than my first desktop PC.

The computer I'm talking about is smaller than that Sharp because it has no screen, keyboard, mouse, cd-rom drive or floppy drive. It just has micro-ports that plugs into this big y-type adapter cable that has all the normal ends you'd connect peripheral and i/o devices to a regular computer with. 15-pin vga, rs-232, dual-ps/2, etc.

I can't recall the name still... :P
