Re using laptops for live use:

Fine for DJ'ing, but maybe not great for all complex band type setup. No room for lots of hard drives, minimal cooling, etc.

But the big problem is if you have to gig outdoors in bright sunlight, where most laptop LCD's aren't bright enough. (Unless you have a Macbook Pro.)

And if you ever do a gig outside in August, with no shade covering, well good luck. I've seen lots of laptops overheat and shut down.

IMO, they're not worth the small bit of convenience.
