I'd rather run my laptop for 12-24 hours on a smarter CPU. It's not as if 
the CPU's normally pegged doing day-to-day stuff, is it? And if you're 
gaming, it's rare to also care about battery life.

You might also find the airlines getting nervous about hydrogen cells 
aboard their expensive, sealed, passenger-packed toys.
