A lot of work-from-home entrepeneurs have invested in laptops. They're easy to cart around and they don't clutter up the house. The only problem with laptops is what I call the 'laptop effect'. This is when you sit with your laptop actually on your lap. Slowly but surely your lap and legs warm up, and even if you don't fall asleep, you will almost certainly experience a degree of 'over-comfort'. You may as well take a sedative. My advice: put your laptop on a desk or table.
