comment Is it possible to build laptop power adapters that are considerably smaller and lighter?
What makes you think Apple aren't at the cutting edge of this already? Given their aggressive technological development of things like phone glass and aluminium laptop bodies.

comment Unified Driver model for low speed and high speed microcontrollers with limited and good memory
Function call latency need not be high and they can be inlined. In an RTOS your concern is worst-case latency, remember.

comment What solutions are available for generating video signal?
Raspi is as cheap as you're going to get for HDMI, unless you repurpose a Chinese HDMI-on-a-stick.

Preventing cable cascade may be deliberate, the length limit is 10m. But most data cables are reversible like this; USB is an exception.

comment Windows Embedded USB Client options
:( WinCE seems to have no "user community". stackoverflow.com/questions/21084570/… may help? (need to include catalog items and turn off KITL). This is one reason why hobbyist stuff is nearly always using linux.

comment Designing Or Customizing A HDD/SSD Logic Controller
Yeah, Dave is correct: as a consultant I'm used to providing estimates for free and then charging for the actual work! There are a few other people interested in this: openssd-project.org/wiki/The_OpenSSD_Project ; or if you want a "starter" project then building a USB mass storage device out of a microcontroller dev kit is quite feasible.
