Need some of your wisdom, since I haven't kept up with the latest computer hardware advances. Currently, I have a Samsung N120 netbook I use as my livingroom/coffeetable computer. I use it for web, music, photos, and minor MS Office duty. It streams very poorly, so I would use it for netflix/hulu, but currently don't.
In the immediate future, I will be building a home network around a synology NAS box. I would like the new netbook to be the main access point for the NAS. So, what Im looking for is...
1) great screen - would love OLED.
2) fast processor for streaming.
3) SSD HD - size is irrelevant due to NAS.
4) Good for Win8 upgrade if I decide to take the plunge.
6) 10-ish" screen.
7) Possible in the 300-400 price range?
So, basically, what I want is something similar to my N120, but brought current with modern tech, and good video replay/streaming ability.
This novice appreciates all your suggestions.
