[ubuntu-uk] New netbook?

Hi there .....   I just got back after some time away using my netbook.  
It is a Samsung N150 currently running Lubuntu 14.04 as it had become 
far too slow on recent Ubuntu releases.  I want to upgrade to something 
faster that can run Ubuntu 14.10 at a fair speed.  The thing is, I don't 
want to go much larger in physical size.  10" or so is ideal for me. I 
tried an Android tablet, but really prefer the netbook.  I could get by 
with a tablet running Ubuntu if there were such a thing, but I can't 
understand why netbooks are now in a minority.  I could possibly go for 
a low-end Windows netbook if I knew for certain that it was fully 
compatible with Ubuntu.  Obviously I prefer not to pay for an OS that 
I'm going to wipe!

Any thoughts or suggestions?  I don't do gaming - I just want something 
that will do e-mails, internet and documents.  I use cloud sync for 
documents and I keep Thunderbird and Firefox in sync with my desktop.

Kind regards,        Barry.
