Is it bad to use laptop as a desktop?

I have a macbook pro from mid 2006.
I want to run parallels windows 7 running Visual Studio and on my mac side have itunes, chrome, photoshop, adium all at once.
I only have 2gig ram on my current MBP, so I was thinking maybe it's time for an upgrade.
My laptop is almost always docked, 98% of the time, is it bad for your laptop to always be plugged in and having lots of draining peripherals(ext hdds, wireless mouse/keyboard, two external monitors).
A looked at MacPro but including tax i wont get under $3k, I could get a pretty sweet new MBP for around $2200.
What's your thoughts?At my Computer Tech Job
Me: Don't get anymore macs please
Me: Cuz I won't have a job if things never break!

I'm curious...how are you running two external monitors on your MBP? I know it can be done...I'm just curious what method you're using.
I hope this helps,
p.s. We have actually had a couple questions just like your's lately. If you do a search...and find them...you may find them interesting reading.
