    Cheap laptop-type thingy for websurfing?

    Hiya all.

    I'm looking for a cheap websurfing device to get online when my mrs. is hogging the main computer

    It needs to be fast enough to watch youtube vids, streaming video and general surfing really.
    A DVD drive would be handy, but not essential.
    Also I'm not that fussy on screen size or other funky things.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.


    p.s. As cheap as possible for something reliable is my main requirement.

    I got one of these a couple of weeks back. Paid £165 for mine in mint condition. No CD drive as its a netbook, but it does have an SD card reader.

    Perfect for web browsing, have tried BBC iplayer a couple of times and playback is fine full screen.
