You can have it both ways.
You can run an XVNCServer which will give you your own X session,
accessible by VNC. This is for all intents and purposes the same as if
you were running the X server on the netbook, though you can
disconnect at any time and come back to see the X session the way you
You can also run session sharing which will provide a VNC connection
to the active X session, so you can use the VNC client on the netbook
to see exactly what's displayed on the other computer.
