I know its not pocket sized, but my macbook air 11" is a damn good compromise.

10+ hours of battery life, and great performance.

A 10" version with retina display and a smaller form factor and it would be flawless.

I don't like office 2007

I've been using office since word 6 and upgraded to every new version! I really think that office 2007 threw the baby out with the bathwater! Vista was a nice fresh update to Windows XP but most things left in the same place and only the UAC proves annoying, and you can turn that off :) Office 2007 is like wtf were they thinking? It seems to me they ran out of ideas to improve their software in any usefull way and decided to re-package it as a office suite for people who never used office before nubs ! Open office has become more like office 2003 than office 2007 is!
