Thanks for the suggestion Tim - and everyone else who replied. Sorry for not responding earlier.

I can certainly pick up a T23 reasonably cheaply, but I was thinking more of something kind of netbook sized - ie. with a 9in screen. Something that's a bit easier to lug around.

The s9e runs an Intel 945GSE chipset apparently. Any thoughts on that?

Thanks for the help.
