This will result in increased competition. What's the downside exactly?

What I want to know is, what laptop has 3-6 disk slots??? The most I've ever seen in a laptop is 2.
Randomness has a well known liberal bias. This is just another example of how our liberal higher educational systems have become corrupted, and why higher education is not just unnecessary, but actually harmful to voters..
First they came for the livers, but I said nothing, because I had no liver...
And I cannot lie.
Technically? I believe the CAN!
Legally? This may be termed an "act of war". Best to be careful here.
Yeah, but how do they fucking work?
1) Is the screen small enough to fit in my pocket?
2) Will the battery last long enough for me to use it actively, more or less all day long, for 24-36 hours on a charge?
3) Does it have a physical, qwerty keyboard?
The answers are:
You mean they were different companies? Huh.
But I'm not concerned with advertising as much as I'm concerned with tracking. How much for a year of tracking-free internet?
Lesson 1: Make sure your college roommate is Bill Gates.
Lesson 2: Drop out. You don't need this stuff, go make money.
Lesson 3: Developers, Developers, Developers, Developers.
Lesson 4: When a monopoly is handed to you, ride it into the ground.
Lesson 5: When no one likes you, it's proper to own the L. A. Clippers.
If you take drugs and get addicted, that's your responsibility. Not anyone else's.
Think so? I can introduce you to some former surgery patients and war veterans among others who were introduced to opiates to control pain by their physicians for very real pain problems and as a result were unable to avoid addiction. I can point you to some suffering from PTSD (not their fault) who are trying to find some way to cope who sometimes turn to chemicals because they don't understand what has happened and it is the only relief they can find before they understand what has happened. Some addictions are not the solely the fault of the person taking the drugs.
It's easy and wrong to paint every drug addict with the same broad brush. Some, like the sort you are thinking of, are simply idiots seeking pleasure or escape. If you are snorting cocaine on your yacht for fun, yeah that's on you and if you die I'm not going to cry a river for you. Others are decent people trying to cope with a real problem not of their own making. You really think that a wounded veteran who gets unintentionally addicted to opiates while trying to control pain is solely responsible for his situation? If so you are a very cold hearted person.
I think you're conflating "responsibility" with "fault". The addict has the responsibility to deal with the addiction and manage their life, regardless of whether they are morally culpable for becoming an addict. Just as they are responsible for their actions if, for example, their addiction drives them to crime in order to support their habit, or they cause harm while under the influence of the substance that they are addicted to.
It's a nice solution idea, but leaving Bluetooth on all the time must eat quite a lot into your battery runtime. I have a hard time using a phone when the battery is drained. I can run for maybe an 3-4 hours on a charge if I'm actively using my phone, and that's with all manner of power saving options turned on, doing their best to maximize my *useful* runtime. The industry insists on super thin, but large surface area smartphones, but I'd give just about anything for something pocket size, 90% battery by mass, and with a slide-out physical keyboard. If it were an inch and a half thick, but could provide a solid 14 hour active use time on a single charge, I'd be in love with it.
