A 15" laptop is sufficient for your needs. Even a 12" would be.
I and many friends of mine build websites, print advertisements, video production, photography, and plenty of other production work inside the confines of a single Powerbook screen. It's a good compromise of power and portability.
The only reason I could see having a laptop/desktop combination would be for field/studio work. Bring a small laptop with you on shoots to transfer data and check your work. Then when you get to the studio, upload all of that onto a desktop to utilize fast and large drives, dual large displays, and the processor power for things like Aperture. But that means lots of $$$. And it also requires a NEED for such a setup, with a professional setting.
