Who uses a laptop for Protools?

I've already posted in the Remote forum but thought I'd ask a related question to the non-remote recordists.
What are your experiences regarding stability especially for long recording times that might be encountered in remote recording? Would a current Macbook (not pro) be reliable? Thinking of an 003R interface and a relatively low cost laptop but don't want to sink money into something that won't be up to the task. Appreciate hearing from those that have experience using this type of system.

I have used a Macbook before for this exact thing & it has worked great for me!

Make sure its plugged in with power and has been setup for protools.

I prefer my Macbook Pro though
