Using a laptop!?!

Anyone have success using a laptop?? I've been a desktop guy for so long and never really considered using a laptop for this, but now i find myself traveling more and more and carrying my desktop everywhere is just not going to work anymore.

I would like it to be atleast as powerful as my desktop, 16gb of ram, with atleast 1.5-2tb
I7 of course

I'm currently in the process of adding another 16gb of ram because my last few projects were between 13 and 14gb pushing my computer to the max. So 32 and i should be a happy camper.

But i wouldn't mind just taking my laptop on the road for work, and then coming back home to finish it out. But im not sure if laptops can even handle the work load

If you want your laptop to be as strong as your desktop, consider an HP Elitebook workstation (quad-core Ivy Bridge i7.) Pricey but totally worth it. I use one to work outside of the studio and this thing is phenomenal. Built like a tank to certified military standards. Better than a MBP.
