One of the biggest problems with laptops are the slower hard drive speeds.
Now, there is one piece of software that I would recommend — DVRack by Serious Magic. It enables you to record directly to the hard drive and enables your laptop to serve as a field monitor. I would still recommend using a more substantial desktop system for editing though.
