Im looking for laptop/tablet that is highly portable

But i come across a few intel processor that i dont have any clue on the suitability with AppGameKit, there are Pentium N,M3 Core and Atom X5. I know the processing power is lower compare to their bigger brother in desktop and laptop but any body coding with any of those processor? Any problem? Anyone?

I have a Linx 10 tablet, I paid about £150 for it I think. Its a year or two old now (>Here< is a link to a more recent version). It's a surprisingly capable PC, As well as AppGameKit, I use mine for Web Design, Admin (MS Office mostly) and the obligatory Netflix/Streaming TV. The battery is awesome as well.

It certainly runs AppGameKit well enough for me to use it in a coffee shop for a few hours whilst I wait for the Mrs to buy new shoes/clothes etc. Lol

I got the link wrong, fixed now

I ordered some Linx 10's for work, really nice keyboard case thing with them, slots in and sticks with magnets and is a really solid and clean design. I think they cost less than £100, total bargain IMO... in fact 3 different people at work bought themselves one. The thing that pleased me about them more than anything is the 2x full size USB ports, which makes them damn useful little devices for all sorts of things.
The code is dark and full of errors

Based on this thread I decided to buy a Linx10, I think it's actually a Linx 10 20, last week as I was also looking for a small computer. I couldn't find one for less than £100 - I didn't look very hard - but instead got one from Argos for £170 and I have to say I'm really impressed with it.

The only downside is that takes about a minute for any AppGameKit app to start, whether from the editor or not. It doesn't seem to have a problem with any other software. It's a little inconvenient but once an AppGameKit app has started it runs fine.
