Default Buying a Laptop

I am going to be buying a laptop so I can do web designing on the move. I am trying to keep the price below 500. What is the best laptop I can buy. If you do not know any good laptops what are good brands.

Would you be against a net book?

Much cheaper but there is no dvd drive and poor graphics.

Only problem with netbooks and web design is the limited screen real-estate can make things difficult.
