Default Notebook as only computer

I'm moving back to Boston soon, and probably into a smaller place than my present one, so I've been thinking about ways to use space more efficiently. My current plan is to replace the CRT monitor of my desktop computer with an LCD monitor, in order to reclaim some desk surface, but I have also been thinking about replacing the computer itself with a notebook computer, now that they are available with larger screens. The larger models are too large to use conveniently for travel, but I already have a very small subnotebook.

Is it feasible to use a notebook computer for publishing work? I am doing less and less of it, but enough that the practicality of working with InDesign, Photoshop, et al. would influence the choice. I'd like to hear from anyone who does this or has tried to. I'm talking about a PC, but I'd also welcome learning about the experiences of Mac users with this.
