A Noteputer is a portable version of the personal computer ubiquitous in the thirty-first century. This small computer typically measures just fifteen centimeters square, with many models able to fold up and fit within a pocket. Noteputers are able to read and write standard data chips as well as play musi-chips and vid-chips. They can also play games, compose letters, access electronic books and, if connected to a communications device, send and receive data messages.[1] Besides a keyboard noteputers feature a touch-activated screen and can hold anywhere from 10 to 50 gigabytes of data.[2]
