Speaking of that sort of thing, I'd really LOVE if there were a device 
about the size of a netbook that could be hooked up to otherwise headless 
machines in colos that would give you keyboard, video & mouse.  i.e. a 
folding netbook shaped VGA monitor with USB keyboard and touchpad.  I know 
there are folding rackmount versions of this (i.e. from Dell), but I want 
something far more portable.  Twice in the past month, I'd had to drive 
100+ miles to a remote colo and took a full size flat panel monitor and 
keyboard with me.  Has anyone actually built this yet?

You might want to look at "Lilliput Computer" offerings  

Add an "Adesso Flexible compact keyboard"

And you're in the 'in a briefcase, or a backpack' range, and nearly in
the 'in a coat pocket' range.  

Not _exactly_ what you asked for -- it's two pieces, not one -- but close.
