Chirp works well on my 10" Dell Netbook 
and Windows XP all on a 7.5 gigabyte solid 
state hard drive. I picked mine up used for $75.
off Ebay. I use a USB mouse and keyboard if
I need a little bigger keyboard. Probably a good
way to go if you plan on using Chirp in the field.

If what you want is a small footprint computer running CHIRP to carry in a go box try a Raspberry Pi or a Beaglebone Black.  Both will fill the bill just fine.
