I have an Acer aspire one.
It was a gift, so not sure of the price.
Came with 512Mb ram, 8Gb SSD, 802.11g
8.9" screen 1024x600
Recently upgraded it to 1.5Gb, 16Gb SSD, 802.11n
Great, but the most effective part was upgrading the memory. (cost UKP7.50)
Really sped it up. The pauses I blamed on the SSD turned out to be the memory.
The new wifi (cost UKP9.50)takes a lot of battery, but I can stream live video form my MythTV box with no stuttering.
The new SSD is faster, but cost UKP60.
just bought one second hand for UKP90, including a six cell battery and a 1Gb upgrade for the wife.
You might want a hard disk and a bigger screen though.
I personally find mine just the right size for me,(typing on it now at my Daughter's in Cornwall) My laptop has a titanium shell, and though durable, is too heavy to use on my lap!
edit:now running UNR, and very well too.

The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!
