Hmm, nope, I don't think it's an x86 specfic thing (ok the APM BIOS is,
but what is the kernel for if not to give a coherant interface to the
hardware specfic stuff), there are Sparc laptops, and I think (I'm not
sure tho) alpha laptops, there just not that common (as opposed to x86).

I know there are Atari laptops, but I can't rember if the hardware is up
to the standard the m68k requires, anyway, the're quite rare, and
musicians mainly have them (because of the midi ports built in, you can
run most any eletronic keyboard/drum machine/sampler/... with one;).
