OK. I like the sound of that.
I'd look into some of the ultra portable laptops. My main laptop has a 13" screen, and I think that's just about a perfect combination of portability and screen size. I'd stay away from the tiny netbooks though. I've never known a single owner of one of those to look back and say "Yeah, that was a quality purchase."
