Unless you're using a laptop stand a laptop is horrible ergonomically to work on, even with external keyboard and mouse the monitor is the big contender - too low for proper use.

I love my docking station, I have my keyboard, mouse, network all hooked up along with two 22" monitors, drop my laptop in and power it up and I'm ready to roll. Without the docking station I could only drive one external monitor and would have to use the laptop monitor as my second screen.

The laptop itself provides the flexibility to work from home, in meetings or travel.
