I wouldn't recommend a netbook (i.e. EEPC) as your only computer. The keyboards are too small for serious typing unless you have the hands of a 5 yr old.
Thanks for the info everyone. I've decided to stay with the Mac (so much nicer). I heard that approximately 40% of the students at my school use Macs, and the school even offers MS Office for MAC for free (I thought it was just Windows originally).
