Delta Putting WiFi on Planes

The announcement is out today that Delta is fitting it’s entire fleet with WiFi for domestic routes over the next year. I’m not sure I’m willing to shell out $10 for the short Orlando to ATL flight and not clear how they are handling multi-leg flights. Aside from all the obvious implications for air travel, what does this do to the mobile PC market? I can’t open my monster IBM in coach seat and I regularly see people struggling to deal with their PC’s. Will we see more mini-notebooks or the proliferation of MIDS to take advantage of this? And with WiFi sucking more battery power on planes will notebook manufacturers have to address short battery life?
