The Acer Aspire One has all your looking for but with only a 8gig SSD 
and linux already installed.
There has been a hardware revision since I bought mine 8 months ago, so 
there might be one with a larger SSD.

I've lugged mine around a lot too and it holds up, plus it has a second 
SD slot for storage expansion and one the better keyboards out there.
