I would prefer it to have a stronger processor then an Atom and more preferably a dual core. Also would rather have a full edition of windows 7 instead of the starter.
With those screen sizes and prices, you are looking at either a netbook or an outdated laptop. Are you ok with either of those? And is your max budget 400 or just in the range of 400? For about 480, you can get an Asus 1201N with a dual core Atom and NVidia's ION.
