Would love to plug my phone Into my monitor, mouse, keyboard, and charger all at once; maybe in a dock that acts as a kvm switch. Seems like a waste of power to turn my desktop on for a bit of light surfing.

The laptop shell would be nice too. Less expense to worry about going missing from a bag or locker, while the real expense & power stays in your pocket.

A couple years ago (with a Sky Lake article?), I said how nice it could be if the phone could be the brains of your PC, and run in different modes, e.g. very low power when just acting like a phone, but ramping up if it is docked to additional peripherals, possibly to include drives, additional graphics horsepower, and/or keyboard/mouse/monitor. It would need better cooling in higher-powered modes, but that could be provided by a Peltier plate on the phone, or other interface to a heat sink. An interface that could make this happen is a good development.
