The relative power, and power consumption, of ARM and x86 chips could be an interesting point in the future...

There are already plenty of PDAs using XScales for just this reason, and the short battery lives of laptops makes me wonder if it's just possible that at some time there could be a large demand for much faster ARMs. A long shot, perhaps (given all the compatibility problems it would cause), but let's keep the fingers crossed.
