I find laptops lack flexibility for the different kinds of work I have to do. Whether it's interfacing with plug-in data acquisition cards or connecting to system controllers, I inevitably end up with two or three laptops or netbooks, each configured to do a specific primary operation. Still, it'd be a PITA to lug a 12-core desktop workstation around with me in the field.

That being said, I wouldn't recommend a laptop for 'serious' use unless portability is a real requirement. Laptops are rather expensive for what you get, cannot be upgraded and are vulnerable to overheating. Creating a compact computer means a lot of compromises on build quality.
