I want one for:
- Watching videos/music (assume I can transcode anything I want to watch)
Playing a bit of MAME (or other emulation)
Web browsing (forums mostly)
Ideally it will be fairly small, linux-friendly (preferably Ubuntu), and have enough battery life for one film and a bash on Battle Circuit(call it 2h30). I'm not fussed about a webcam or cellular connectivity but Wi-Fi is a must. How much would I be looking to spend and what options would people put forward, if you can give costs in GB £ then that would be good, but I can reasearch that myself.
Oh, on a related note, Wi-Fi spots; How restrictive do most of them tend to be on ports you can use? I'd like to run a proper VPN but can settle for SSH if that's more likely to work.
