Picked up a Samsung Chromebook 3 at Walmart for around 90$. Cheap. Super duper cheap.
It has a paltry 32gb internal storage, but I dont use it. Instead, I installed crouton, and set up a chroot on a big microSD card. By default, crouton wants to use a very old revision of ubuntu. (Trusty, I think...) It has no problems setting up a Xenial or newer one though. It just complains at you something terrible when you tell it to install anything other than trusty, and after that shuts the hell up and works as expected.
Regardless, this is an Intel based chromebook, so the chroot can drive WINE like a champ.
It is a 1.6ghz dual core Intel system with 2gb of RAM, with ZRAM enabled. Has wifi, bluetooth, HDMI out, and the like.
No physical HDD, so dropping isn't an issue. The CPU is actually a 2ghz chip that is downthrottled for heat dissipation reasons, so it has no fan inside. Internal battery lasts 8 hours in active use.
It weighs less than a pound.
It works just fine for me as a netbook. I can run some limited office productivity software on it (Office works in WINE if you know what you are doing-- and OpenOffice works native, due to linux) I have a choice of browser, I can multitask, and do local saving. Works great. Just a little inconvenient, because I have to start the chroot every boot. (there ARE ways to make it boot automatically when chrome starts, but meh.)
Really, if it werent for the chromebooks using some bizzarro ACPI based keyboard and sound hardware that normal Linux does not know how to handle, it would be the go-to hardware for linux chromebooks to turn them into inexpensive netbooks.
