Little Laptops?

Hey gents
I'm thinking of buying a cheap, older laptop just for writing, watching (ripped from my DVD) movies, and running photoshop to work on photos. I probably don't need anything faster than a 500mhz P3 (like I said, I want it cheeeeaaap), but what I do want is SMALL and LIGHT. It doesn't even have to have a CD drive, as long as it has USB ports. Can anyone give me some names of older laptop models that I should look for used that will fit the bill?
Small, but not tiny. 10" screen should be fine.
