More so if the secondary storage (disk) were also so distributed.
I spend so much time waiting for data to flow to and from the
single disk on my machine. But then of course you need a massive
switch so everything can flow to where it needs to be. It will
come, it has to, but it's going to take quite a number of years
before I can carry it around in my laptop.
