my vita is my laptop. i have a desktop but im on my vita more. the vita will be one of the best portable devices. the psp plays flash games on pspicy.com i dont know why vita dont support the website, but with all the apps coming out you should try the vita for the store return time policy and if you dont like it take it back. you will also need a memory card for everything so give it a shot.

If you have an $1800 laptop and get 15 minutes battery life, You did something seriously wrong. My alienware M17x gets 2-2.5hr when playing a graphics intensive game, and 4-6hr when browsing hte web.
A vita is not a laptop, not is it a laptop replacement. No email client, extremely limited applications, no microsoft office, no physical keyboard. They're not in the same category for a reason. On the other hand, hte laptop does not have the games or controller like function, but you can get its own games, and a lot more of them, and a wireless controller, should you desire. My girlfriends $500 hp 17" laptop gets 5-6hr battery life, and has an actual video card. It's not the most powerful, but it plays some pretty intensive games on lower settings rather well. And even with the web browser in the vita, it's VERY much so not a full feature browser. I would not use it as a primary device, similarly to how my iphone and ipad are not primary devices.

I'm pretty sure your parents want you to get a laptop for your junior year in high school for a reason. You can do book reports and research projects on a laptop. You cannot do those things on a Vita. You say you have MSO on a desktop, but you can't lug your desktop down to Starbucks or what ever to work somewhere that isn't home. Or when someone else is using the desktop.
My daughter is a high school senior who doesn't go anywhere without the Dell Netbook she got for Christmas two years ago. Sure, it doesn't run games well, but that's not important to her at this point. The battery also lasts well over 10 hours on a charge.
An iPad can also be used to do school work. There are MSO-type apps available for it, and you can attach a bluetooth keyboard to turn it into a nearly fully functional 'computer'. There's still no Flash, but any of the web browsers available (Safari, Opera, Diigo, etc) are a heck of a lot better than whatever PoS the Vita uses. iPad also has youtube, facebook and twitter apps, as well as Netflix and literally thousands of decent games. Again, the battery life is well over 10 hours (4 hours in today, and the battery on my iPad is only down to 93%).
Either option is actually a better option than a Vita for what your parents have in mind.
