+ - On the hunt for a cheap SubNoteBook

For those who think that this form factor was created by the Asus EEE (As seemingly does wikipedia) it might interest you that the current forerunner in my search is a 190MHz,64MB,640x480 256 colour beastie known as the Psion Netbook circa 2001-ish. Basically i have a desktop, a server and an xbox and so truly only want it for surfing, email and the odd bit of SSHing home on weekends away. The aforementioned Psion is, however, of the StrongArm processor variety, which nudges it down on the desireability meter, but the fact that there exist wifi cards for it's 16-bit PCMCIA slot does score it extra points. So, anyone here got any suggestions of what to look out for on ebay? So long as I can play Doom II on it too... that is."
