OK so I'm thinking about getting a laptop/netbook. My one concern is that will i be able to use the printer that i currently use for my desktop? Can i just attach the printer to my notebook and it will magically work?

Depends on how the printer gets its data. Does it use a Parallel printer port (with pins?) or USB?

If all you're using is a USB and power cable, you should be fine :thumbsup:
