I like the fact that you can go anywhere with a laptop, especially if you have a wireless network in your house. the downside is that they are expensive...that may or may not be an issue but it's worth mentioning. and it's true you do get more for your money with a desktop, as the parts are less expensive.
I'm actually looking at laptops for right now, seeing whats out there

Laptops are getting sexy with wifi
Use the internet while in the bath garden anywhere
Still desktops better value and easier too upgrade too

I would get both if you plan on taking your work out A LOT. If you can get buy with your home desktop or have computer access at work, than don't get one. I use my iPaq PDA frequently and transfer the info across to my desktop.
