The USB ports on a laptop should be of the same specification as any other, so in theory you should be able to use the same devices on a laptop as on a desktop. I'm aware of some reports well in the past of USB2 ports not quite meeting current specs, but haven't heard of any similar problems with USB3.


Having to power two screens would of course considerably reduce operation time on a battery charge.
