Someday soon when you're flying economy class, you'll have a personal in-seat PC with 10.6-inch LCD monitor that will let you work without opening your laptop. A USB socket on your seat lets you plug in your USB drive to open up your documents and edit them using the StarOffice software package that's provided on the PC.
