would like it to have an SSD to save battery life and cut down on loading times, must have an HDMI port, USB 3 and Windows 7 as an OS

the reason I want a net book over a Laptop is because of the extra portability and hopefully longer battery life. Is there a Netbook (or one easily modded to fit my specs) out there?

Maybe I'm just getting old, but I find those 10inch screens unusable. The smallest size laptop I would buy would be 14inches anything smaller and I prefer a tablet for my occasional browsing/email checking.
