Portable Linux Computer?


My laptop just died, and I'm looking for something to do my day to day office applications on at work. I have been trying to use an Android tablet, but none of the office apps are full featured enough for my needs, so I'd like to look to a portable Linux solution on a SERIOUS BUDGET. This hit me out of nowhere, so I didn't have any funds set aside, but it's critical for my job. I'm more or less freelance, so no employer to pick up the tab, and it has to be reasonably portable. That said, I'm open to creative. Mini ITX, portable monitors, even ARM devices(something more powerful than a Raspberry Pi, I've tried that) anything that'll work is okay. I just want to keep the budget as low as possible. Thanks.

Go for a used netbook, should be more than sufficient for office use.
