should I get a laptop or desktop

My desktop computer is getting pretty old. Running MC 5.5.2 – will download 6 as soon as I get an editing break. Does anyone edit solely on a laptop. Was looking at the Dell M6600 or equivalent HP. Have 3 external drives and a AJA IOExpress.

Has anyone done this for any length of time? It would be nice to be able to take it home It seems like they might be less robust. Thanks.

Error Message on Startup

This is an error message I have been getting fairly often on startup:

Exception: AMPI subsystem error, ErrorMessage: DSM future error from client eDSMError_exception:assertion in "DSM_Transport.cpp", line 118 (err=60),

D5MMnager::InitializeDSM in DSMManager.cpp: 342,

AMPIMainComponent Rep::Initialize InitializeDSM Failed in AMPIMain.cpp: 81

AMPIMainComponent::Initialize mRep->Initialize in AMPIMain.cpp: 159,

AMPIMainComponent::Initialize in AMPIMain.cpp: 163


It usually comes up while it says it is initializing Audio Plugins.  Usually I can restart MC and it will eventually open after a few attempts. This has been a consistent problem for the last few days though and I was wondering if there was anything I could do to prevent it.
