Of course there is a technical value. Have you ever wondered why these laptops are so thin? Take a look at the Macbook Pro's battery.
I bet it would be a lot harder to make one of these swappable. It's as wide as the laptop, almost half of the height of the machine and about goes almost halfway through. Add the non-regular shape, and you've got something hard to swap in and out.

Not even lasers. Hackers have been doing this with freaking LED's for long range networking.

Short of really massive weather conditions they are reliable as hell and dont require clearing all the trees out of the frenel area in front of the dish.

Memory fault - where am I?
