Topic: DIY Ebook Reader.

I'm thinking of buying a older Laptop something under 11" in screen size to use as an Ebook reader. I've kind of settled on either an HP TC1000 or a Sony Vaio Picturebook as these seem reasonable on E-Bay.

Of course, I'd like to run FreeBSD or NetBSD on them since all I want to do is read EBooks that are mainly PDFs. Just wondering if anyone has an experience with either of those machines or has a Recommendation for a nice older laptop that is similar to these.
