Default Sony Vaio TX

Hey guys

Thinking about getting one of these for the sole reason that it's small and light. I do a bit of traveling and wanted something which could fit into carry-on lugguage and not require its own just to bring.

I'm a little worried about the performance of:

1.2 Ghz ULV
60GB 4200RPM 1.8" HD

I will be watching videos (divx'ish ones which require more processor work than DVDs), documents (ranging from word to publisher), light photo editing, listening to music and light editing.

I was initially concern about the limitations that 60GB of HD space (actually it's 40GB - Sony partitions 20GB away). I am considering keeping all my data on a separate drive at home and only copying the files (videos, pictures, music) which I will need when I travel and using a flash drive for my documents.

Can anyone shed some light on this machine and whether it will be adequate.

My train of thought is... screen and keyboard too small and cramped, I can get an Vaio S instead, but then I could just get a Samsung or Asus or even get one of Apple's new 13 inch device whenever it comes out.

Please no bashing on the mac. I use both with decent proficiency.
