I'm a freelance proofreader/editor and I'm considering getting something ultraportable that I can work on. I usually work on a larger laptop (15.6 inch - one I already had before I became a proofreader) but it would be really hard to travel with - it's quite heavy. I need to be able to run Microsoft Word (for tracked changes) and Acrobat Reader (for comments) but I don't need a lot of storage. The 32GB drive would be okay, especially if I bumped it up with an SD card. The full-sized keyboard is helpful.
I'm just curious if anyone has used one of these in similar circumstances (or a similar device from another manufacturer), and how it performed. I'm open to suggestions around the $500 mark.
