Word Processing.

Hello All (gosh it's chilly all the way up here in PC help!)

I'm in need of comfortable word processing.

I need a device that would allow me to type, edit and save document as I sit on the sofa or propped up somewhere else comfy.
I just want to write stories without staring square eyed at my PC, or browsing the 'net instead of getting on with the task.

Are there any laptops out there that cater to pretty much JUST that?
I must stress...it MUST have a keyboard or allow one to be plugged in!

I have a budget of approx 0....(or more, if pushed)

"Cheap" and "Laptop" don't get mentioned in the same phrase, really.

You might find one in the local rag, or on freecycle, if you're both lucky and quick. We have a kinda second hand shop, here, for those kinds of things, including ipads and that kinda toy stuff. Although they're cheaper, I wouldn't call them cheap, coz I can often build a new desktop machine for less.

A low-spec one will run a normal text editor. But, if you want to use Word, or something similar (AbiWord?), it'll need a bit more OOOMPH!
