I'm going to be traveling a lot soon & would like a portable laptop / netbook that I can use. Mostly, I'll be using it for reading/writing emails, reviewing documents, listening to podcasts (itunes) and watching movies (quicktime). Occasionally, I'd like to be able to use Adobe Photoshop & Microsoft Visio if I have to even if it isn't optimal (I have a desktop for that).
I've looked at the HP DM1Z, but it isn't available and I've had bad experiences with Dell's in the past so no Adamo for me.
Having a SSD hard drive isn't crucial, but I was told that it would be very helpful. Price is not really that big of a deal, but I'd like it to be cheaper than a Macbook Air w/ SSD
