Thanks donavands but that was too expensive also. I ended up getting an Asus EEE netbook and it works just great for what I was looking for. Combat Mission runs on it and even Mad Minutes 2nd Manassas real time Civil War game works great on it. Only cost me $198 and some shipping fees.
Other noteable games that work great are Civilization II Gold, Master of Magic, Master of Orion II, 1830 Railroad Barrons, all my HPS wargames by Tiller. Centurion Defender of Rome and tons of the old RPG games by SSI and ULTIMA and Might & Magic series. Industry Giant II, Crusader Kings and all the 2D Paradox games before they screwed the series with 3D. Field of Glory and Spartan by Slitherine and Warlords III & IV. I have a slew of games to play now while not working at my job. haha
