This is my biggest gripe with the Panasonic toughbooks we use in police cars.  The keyboard is a rubber membrane type and there is no tactile feel when you press it.  The keys are incredibly sensitive, a simple touch of the key will result as a keypress, but I like having that tactile feel, to know that I actually pressed it

Somthing like the Acer Aspire One is a no brainer at $380!

A ham buddy of mine bought one and he loves it.  Small, runs windows and perfect for a portable APRS setup.
