Replacement laptop/tablet for internet and music

Hi, I'm looking for a starting point for further research.

I need to get a new computer and I'm not sure what to get. I mainly want to use the internet and play my music which is on a portable hard drive.

I do need some document capability but not the full functionality of Microsoft Office programs.

I was looking at laptops but maybe a tablet would do as I want something with good portability.

None of the reviews I've found have said anything about speaker quality which is important to me.

My price range is about £400-£800 but I could maybe stretch to £1000 if it would make a big difference.

If size and weight is an important factor, then you might look at ultra books. They have screen sizes from 11" upwards.

Sound quality could be an issue with any laptop/tablet due to the size and location of speakers.
