And on this note if _all_ you really want to do is type up notes,
perhaps consider a smartphone. Much less power required and with an
external bluetooth keyboard than can be quite handy to type up simple
stuff. Solar phone chargers are certainly available.

I have used the internal quickoffice thing in my Nokia E71 like this
quite successfully.  And used Putty connected via SSH to the work
machine running vi! :)

Granted the small screen on the E71 is not crash hot for this sort of
thing but there are other devics with much larger screens about that
might do the trick.
