The requirement you list are pretty much bottom of the line basic functionality. You can pick up an under $400 (new) laptop that will do much more than you need. If you'd like something small and easily portable with Linux pre-installed, check out the new ASUS EeePC.

Im sorry, I thought this was just a site to ask questions...I did not realize Linux is something particular. I will look further and find just a question and answer site. Sorry if I offened anyone.
