ok, so i recently purchased a yiynova msp19u and I couldnt be happier with it. However, I am going to be doing a ton of traveling soon and I absolutely cannot fall behind on my work.
I was originally looking to mount something to the back of the tablet. I was looking into the RaspBerry Pi, bit the tablet will not run on Linux.

Ok so what I need is
SUPER tiny pc, that will run windows xp, the smaller the better.
run photoshop (1gb RAM and up).
Price tag of under $200 (the cheaper the better, I'm so poor right now).
at least 1 usb ports
VGA, DVI, or HDMI out

What i dont need
A ton of storage space
anything fancy

i dont need a powerhouse, just the smallest margenally usable piece of hardware out there that runs xp.

I have been looking and I keep finding really awesome LINUX and Androids PCs and really expensive windows and mac PCs, i havent found anything that would work for what I Need and the deadline is approaching fast.
I wouldnt be asking if I didnt really need to, please help me out guys.

P.S. im not oposed to using GIMP or some other free/low resource programs if running Photoshop for that pricerange is unreallistic.
