You mean, like an internet tablet? How about a Nokia N800...somewhere just above about $200

But even better the new Nokia N810. Less than half the volume of the N800...in fact, its width is just less than that of my HewlettPackard HP-48GX, it's 1/2 inch thick instead of over 3/4" and it reaches only to the bottom of the screen on the HP....

And yesterday, in a downtown Toronto office tower, it picked up 32 wifi signals...amazingly over half were unlocked.

Even has a nice built in stand, so it will sit at the correct reading angle, just like your laptop's screen. And it has a keyboard and bluetooth. Makes a great MP3 player, and will do video. And has a built-in GPS.
