I'm looking to work abroad and travel next year for an extended spell, and having learnt from past experience that travelling with a 17" laptop is nothing short of torture, I'm going to take my little netbook that I bought for my mum a few years ago to try and teach her some computer basics instead. With that in mind, what games would you recommend for a little machine like that? I'm a big fan of strategy and RPG games, but I'm open to any suggestions. The OS is windows (XP I think) and I've run steam on it before, so steam suggestions are welcome.

I realise it's hard to suggest games for a low-end system when I don't have the specs, but I don't have the laptop with me right now, so I'll pick it up today or tomorrow and post the specs on here when I have them.
