I'm spending the fall semester in Australia, and I'm looking for a small netbook that I can easily throw in a backpack to take on the plane, bus, and out to the field. Word and Powerpoint are a necessity. I'd like to be able to use it to Skype with my family. A DVD drive would be great, although an external USB drive could be an option. I was initially looking at tablets but I think a netbook would better serve my needs. Thoughts? Suggestions?

The 10" netbook for light weight and longer battery life. Great for travel. The 12" netbook gets you a bigger keyboard and display, at the cost of battery and size. Stepping up to a 13" laptop/notebook gives you the CD/DVD drive, but more $$$.

Take a look at Lenovo offerings.
