Hello out there to all my fellow geeks :) !
I am in need of some product recommendations but I have certain criteria. I want something that:

1)Is as small as possible (PDA or super small laptop)
2)Can word process easily (Easy to take notes in class)
3)Decently long battery life
4)Can watch videos and listen to music


This listing here is in order of importance. So the first one (being small) is very important while the 4th one is the least important

Thanks to all those that reply! :)

Wannabee beat me to it. They are offered here (it's a great canadian e-tailer).
Though be warned, they are in very high demand and depending on where you order and when, you're likely going to have to wait.

Edit: Wow, this thread is a little older then what I had thought.....
