Thin, light, and 1080p laptop

I'd like a thin and light 1080p laptop. It does not need to be powerful, but it does need to be cheap
. I'd like to spend about $300, but it must be under $500. The perfect machine would be something like a chromebook, but with a higher res screen than the ones I'm aware of. The resolution requirement trumps the thin and light requirements.

That's pretty much it. Its only task will be text editing and web browsing. Exynos5-level processor, or one of the newest atoms, would be plenty of power. Linux, Chrome OS, or Windows is fine, but Android isn't really.
Does such a beast exist? Any deal sites that I might should camp out at that might eventually have a bulky, but 1080p, laptop for around that price range?
