Now, if they're making MXM bits for a rack (so you can get 6 or so in a unit), that's a lot more interesting, and I guess that'd make sense.
I thought about MXM for rack-mounting but then decided that "embedded" isn't the same concept as rack-mounting.

Embedded is something you deliver in a package - it might be a beefy laptop as you argue or it might be "mini-compute" type thing that operates as a desktop/deskside unit. Or something like a medical visualisation unit?
