price under $500
for 500 bucks you won't be getting a lot of performance with a normal computer.
chromebooks however would be a very good choice since you just want something on the go and not something that's your main computer.
i suggest this 350$ version http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=os_chrm_58?&node=2858603011 has 6hrs of battery life compared to the 8 and a half of the 500$ version. other than that theres no difference whatsoever. if you really need the battery life though heres the link to the 500$ version

nvm about the os lol i looked at everyones link and watched a few reviews and the one i like the most is *asus transformer* and the os is called honey cone or somthing lol i never use it b4 but it looks cool.

i dont think its a good idea to run windows7 on a notebook cuz widnows7 would make it run slow because it takes up a lot of memory.

the asus transformer is a notebook and tablet
