Default Laptop to act as a dumb terminal to desktop

Hello Friends,
I am looking for a notebook that is good for web browsing. However, I do have a high end desktop that is capable of running CPU and graphic intensive apps. It would be great if my laptop could wirelessly act as a dumb terminal for this desktop. Do you guys know of any laptop like this?

OP: what is your budget? Are you looking for anything specific in this laptop, or just web browsing? How large a screen would you like? Are you okay buying refurbished?

If all you want is web browsing, I would recommend a netbook. The ASUS Eee line is amazing.

And I have a link somewhere that allows you to set up a laptop as a network monitor. I'll post it as soon as I can find it.

This should help you out.
