iphone is b-game as far as remote admin is concerned

current laptop-replacement jesus is nokia n810

800x480 LCD (!!!)
qwerty keyboard (!)
runs linux (+)
open source code, yes, really, you can recompile everything (!!!)
wifi onboard
no wireless, will tether through your phone (-)
API is on top of X, you can toss your X session onto it (!!!)

It is a lil bit bigger than iphone, but still small enough to carry in 
your back pocket for "oh shit" moments. generally, anything you can do on 
laptop you can do on n810.
