I gotta make up classes online, the only thing I want it for is to do that.

I really don't want to spend a lot of money. Unless I have to.

SOOO? Should I go with a netbook for like 2-300 USD or do they suck so bad that I might as well upgrade to a laptop...

Netbook = More battery life, but more basic.

Laptop = Less battery life, but can game etc.

I'd go for netbook.

If it's just for that, go for the cheaper one.

Depends what you'll be doing on it.

Like I said I only need it for typing and doing my online classes. No games or anything, no need for a CD drive

It sounds like you already knew the answer before posting here.

A cheap laptop. Net books are incredibly tiny with small keyboards and screens that get annoying.

because I want to know if the difference in price, versus the more I could get with a laptop, is worth it. I only need it for this, but if it's a hundred bucks more and I get a crapload more stuff, why would I pass it up??

You're the only person that knows what you want/need to get out of it. A 400 dollar laptop isn't going to be the cream of the crop either.

You wouldn't notice any significant difference if all you're doing is word processing and internet. Like I said, you're the only one that knows what you want to do with it. If you were going to be doing more than that, say storing/playing music on it, guitar pro, watching movies etc. I'd recommend the laptop.

All you've said is you want it to do "online classes" so I don't see any point in spending 100 more bucks for things you won't use.

well heck if I had it I'd use it haha I probably would want music and stuff on it. I just really don't have the money. So unless I can find a cheap one or good used one I'd prolly just have to go with the netbook.
See I'd love a 1700 dollar asus, wouldn't we all? haha but I got stuff I gotta pay for

I know you can get a student discount on HP laptops for sure, google "HP Academy". I think a few of the other companies do it to. Also, HP is having a memorial day sale. You might be able to find a cheap one from them.

EDIT: This is $398 with the student discount and the memorial day sale.
