I agree with Milt.
I blew the dust off my wife's old Asus Netbook.
Great for field programming with CHIRP

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.

The reason you don't see it discussed here often is because it's in the FAQ.

Some of the technical issues are listed here:

Feel free to discuss a port of Chirp to Android, but realize that none
of the GUI code is compatible. The underlying radio clone code should
run fine on Android devices with serial ports. If you are an Android
developer with some free time, you could make a few people happy by
rewriting Chirp for Android.
