Ok, other than the cool factor, is there a purpose to having that technology in a laptop? Motion sensing technology has been around for a long time, so I’m guessing there is some new reason to put it into a computer.

Yeah, it relates to the feature that parks the hard drive heads if it thinks a drop/collision is imminent.

Yeah, that’s a good thing. They should build that into the hard drives instead of the computer.
