My question is, considering the bluffing performances of the M1 MBP and its price tag, would it be a sound option to have just that, no more desktop? I am mainly using DxO PL.

A 13" is OK for travel and at home I would plug it to my 2560 x1440 monitor.

Yes, of course.

I would use a good thunderbolt 3 dock for this case, so you just have to plug-in just one single cable in desktop mode. Performance-wise, it doesn't matter if you use a MBA, MBP oder MacMini for that. I think even the iMac uses mobile processors, but the M1 chip even smokes the Intel iMacs.
