Tower and large monitor for serious work, notebook for non-critical quick stuff

I have an ultrabook with an IPS display and it's not a very good tool for image editing. The display is too small and the trackpad is no substitute for a drawing tablet (my tablet is bigger than my notebook).

A big, high res display gives me a lot of room for application tools while still seeing large images. I suggest a wide gamut display if you can do color management correctly. Being "tied down" is a good thing for color workflow if you do it right. You want consistent ambient lighting and a consistent way to view prints if you're doing any printing.

My ultrabook is pretty quick but my tower kills it. If a notebook is powerful enough for you, you could set up a work area with a decent large display.
