From the article:

Quote:
Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who was present at the unveiling, said the computer was about “making people’s lives better.”

"We know we are in a competition, and we know this competition is real and it matters who gets there first," Perry said, according to CBS.

"There are things this computer does that I can't explain, but what I can explain is that there are people's lives out there that can be changed, maybe a loved one with a terrible disease," he added.
This looks like a significant step forward in computing power. Shrinking all that power from 4,608 servers to a laptop sized machine for portable use would be something, huh? Can that even be done in 20 years?
