Thanks for all of the advice and experiences, this being such a international forum its hard to give price ranges, but would like to spend less then $800US.

That is a lot to pay. A good netbook can be purchased new for under $300. Personally I would recommend a used laptop, with large disk, DVD or BluRay dirve, and SD card slot. They are not a lot heavier or larger than a netbook, but are much more pleasant to use.

For quicker booting and avoidance of antivirus pattern download, you can install Linux on it. Linux does everything you need to do except Quicken (if you use Quicken for accounting).
