You know sometimes we spend a lot of time denying the obvious. A laptop
is designed to move around. So if the OP found himself in a hotel in
another city with his laptop he would have to access a different
network. The case of moving the laptop around in the same network
certainly is possible but I would assume be a rare case and can be
removed from any general discussion.

Unless, of course, one is committed to argumentation.
Any fool can paint a picture, but it takes a wise person to be able to
sell it.
