Remember the TRS-80 100?
That slim, sturdy machine, first sold through Radio Shack in 1983, had everything a road warrior really needed. The computers had a modem, a good, chunky keyboard and the ability to write up to 11 pages of text. And it only weighed 3.1 pounds.
By contrast, many of today's laptops are a step backward. Sure, they can play some video games, surf the Web and handle modern e-mail and calendar software. But they're big, they're heavy and they're easy to break. Rather than making their users more mobile, some laptops are merely weighing them down--and causing traffic jams in airport security.
为什么有些笔记本电脑会导致机场安检处“交通堵塞”呢?是说笔记本电脑的什么缺点呢?

No

是说
1) some laptops are merely weighing users down
2) some laptops causing traffic jams in airport security.

以上两方面情况说明 some laptops cannot make  their users more mobile

根据目前TSA的规定,安检时, 必须将笔记本从行李包中取出,放到传送带上过X光机,必要时,要求现场打开启动以证明它是能够运行的真正的电脑,而不是伪装成电脑的炸弹。这使得安检速度大大下降,等候队伍大排长龙无法顺利快速通过,对于随身携带laptop的旅行者来说,这是一个令人沮丧的体验。
