Is the MacBook Air a good laptop for college?

I am currently a Junior in high school, and am looking to get a laptop, and one of the major things that I am keeping in mind is being able to have a dependable laptop for college. Among the "crap" that I am bringing is going to be my "souped up" desktop computer (mainly for the reason that I have invested a lot of money in building it, and accessories), and I am going to be looking to (1) network my desktop and laptop together, and (2) (if I get an Apple) have a dual-boot of XP. Long story short, would the Macbook Air be a good laptop for the campus life.

***Forget about price, because I would be able to get it for about ,200 with the superdrive, so optical or price would not be relevant in making a choice.***

Thanks,
Graham.
