Dated? How so? If you don't need do take your computer with you then a desktop is a much better option. [...]

That's the problem, a desktop is not portable.  With a laptop, docking station, monitor and keyboard you have in essence a portable desktop.  Laptops are very powerful now.  Many hi-tech companies solely use them in the docking station configuration.

You made need 7 drives but that's a special case.   I don't need to keep more than a couple TB directly on my computer.  The rest can go on external drive and NAS or even cloud based.  Many of the big names in photography use them, Kelby, Timi Grey, Scott's sidekick Kowsloski (sp) and others.  I don't care to edit on a laptop screen but it's nice to be able to pull a laptop off a docking station and go.  Since I don't need to travel with my personal laptop that much my daughter has it now.
