Great, now your PC will *be* the dongle.

And is there a major advantage to this approach when compared to a smartcard + conventional PC?

Phoenix Technologies, the BIOS people, have developed a security toolkit
that leverages BOIS features (and hence is somewhat hardware-based), called
FirstAuthority SDK.  I'm not much of a systems-level security person, but it
strikes me that being able to make assertions like, "only run on this
machine" is a useful thing.
