This is my kind of laptop. All I would ever want a laptop for is internet and word processing, this would have a rather long battery life, it would be ideal for me.

Well, seeing the picture I'd guess it has a 1280x800 resolution. Or something similiar in 16:10.

Personally, I'd use an UMPC for mobile video watching. :)
And of course mobile internet, if you can use some of the 3G devices with it. :)
