I want to build a netbook, designed for travel, with these features, can anyone recommend what I would need to put under the hood to make it happen. Cheap is the aim of the game. - webcam for skype - music playback through headphones only - video playback (internet or usb only; no dvd drive) - photo storage - basic photo editing - Surf the internet That is all it is required to do. The more crap I can trim off it the better. With that said; it does need to be able to do those things to a reasonable standard. So what I am ultimately asking is all the simple questions like: - how much ram? how much storage? what kind of hardrive? what kind of processor? what kind of graphic and audio cards? etc etc I need as much info as possible so that i can take it to someone and get an immediate quote on how much it would cost to build. I am sure there is a million variables that i have not taken into account, however, please just go with "the minimum standard of what is required to achieve those tasks". Multi-application abilities are not a huge deal, however, i need it to remain fairly responsive with a lot of internet tabs open at once. Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide.
