Take that how you will, I'm currently not following my advice seeing as how I only own a laptop...
This is good thinking. We have a netbook to supplement, and it does most everything you need if you've got a home or office computer for heavy lifting. Much lighter, handier, and cheaper.
As for what kind of notebook to get if you go that way, I'm an HP guy. They've really gotten their brand together.
