It depends on your taste. I know engineers who write all their code on a laptop stationed in various comfy chairs throughout the building. I know other engineers (including myself) who never use their laptop except for emergencies. (I've always wanted to be able to program on the couch, but I just can't get comfortable.)

The idea is: you can choose. (If you want a couch at your desk, nobody is stopping you. And electronically-controlled height-adjustable desks are standard equipment, so if you want to work at your desk but alternate between standing and sit, you can. It's wonderful.)
