I have on my desk a 9" Sony VAIO PCG-141A.  Normally, i would avoid any 
Sony PC like the plague, but this is a very nice little thing.  The 
screen is 1024x480, and closed, it is about 9"x6"x1.5".  It has a 600mhz 
Transmeta Crusoe, 128MB of memory, and I think a 8GB hard drive.  
Unfortunately, it has no integrated network cards.

I'm thinking it would be a fun little machine to use as a 
terminal/email/web browser if it was running linux or a BSD.  Has anyone 
used one of these for that?  Any suggestions for a wireless network card 
that would not be  too ackward?  It has a USB port and a pc card slot 
available, but i  would want something that doesn't stick out too much 
and would not be prone to breakage.
