I assume you want something like
rsync -av username@netbook:/home/username username@inspiron:/home/username
That will sync all between the two machines. Alternatively you could connect the external drive to your netbook and mount it under mount. Then assuming you have a folder on the external drive for transfering your user stuff you could do this:
From the netbook:
rsync -av /home/username/ /mnt/userbackup/
Then connect the external drive to the inspiron and run:
rsync -av /mnt/userbackup/ /home/username/
Hope that helps!
