I replaced my desktop a little over two years ago with a refurb MacBook Pro. Best thing I ever did. I can bring the thing with me on vacations, I can use it on the couch. For external storage, I have 2, 1TB external FW 800 drives daisy-chained together, I can add more if needed.
I'm not a total Mac Snob, with Windows 7, the PC option is viable again.
I'm sure this is an option with a non-Mac, look for a laptop with a decent enough graphics card and use an external monitor when docked. My MBP is a 15.4" model which gives me the portability in laptop mode that I like. A 17" model is no longer all that portable.
