It's not that it can't be done, it can, and has been many times.  But, in general, the power management features, and other features common in laptops (like on-board video) often create problems for Mach3.  If your motherboard/BIOS allows disabling enough of this stuff, then a laptop can work just fine.  Many, however, do not allow you this much control.
