machine to use - searching

Hi there.
I've been a fan of portable apps through my college years, which has been a great help. I'm looking for a light tablet/netbook and to put portable apps on there.

Pretty new to me. Internet's turned up tablet netbooks and some flashy looking Tablet PC-MID.

Typically on it I'd use EasyPHP, Notepad portable or some other ide,
use an app to remote control a linux machine or a windows one on occasion(teamviewer, hamachi, stuff like that),
only have a wifi connection otherwise not online, check out youtube now and then.

Weight is a problem for me; nothing more than a pound.
I suppose something weighing 3 pounds would be okay but it's pushing it.
Overall tablets seem lighter and I lean towards them more, and I could see using a wireless keyboard/mouse.

These are some features that I like:
-at least 2 usb ports
-sd/ microsd slot
-voice recording

Things that interest me:
ExoPC Slate/Ciara VIBE ExoPC
Samsung Sliding PC 7 is looking pretty nice. I don't know how durable that is though, if it's a good spring or whatever and hard to destroy.
CL900 -looking really strong, but the weight could be a problem.

Thank you : D

Alright, I think I'll be

Alright, I think I'll be going for the Asus Eee pad transformer. I had to read about its processor and portability to figure that okay, what I'd use it for wouldn't be a problem, and I liked a lot of its tech specs.
Motion and Fujitsu looked really nice but weight is a big issue with me.

I have a asus eeepc and love it, except that blamed power switch issue I'm having.

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world
