Agreed! The cramped screen space (I run dual vid cards in sli with 4 
monitors with development apps spread all over them!), sluggish response 
(open what I have running on my work station and any laptop goes into 
crawl mode), heat (if you really run it in your lap as the name infers) 
and that just touches on the very start of my list. Yes, I have few 
laptops and use them when I 'need' to and one often times goes with me 
when I leave my office (but my phone is rapidly replacing that need 
unless I'm going for days)... but why on earth would I consider using 
only a laptop? Well, if I was always mobile, but I'm not. Maybe if I 
didn't need to run any development systems... Eclipse on a laptop 
certainly works, but is sluggish vs. a workstation. Open Dreamweaver, 
Photoshop, Eclipse, three web browsers a secure shell or few, email, IM, 
and then need to open a Word attachment and most laptops chug to worst 
than a crawl.

Yes, laptops are more becoming a tool of the trade, but I don't think 1% 
is any where near a real number. It 'might' be as high as 50%???? 
(totally grabbing at the stars saying that).
