Default Networking Laptop or Desktop

Greetings! I am about to come into a great amount of money in the next 2 weeks. I'm about to be out on my own for the first time, and I am allowed to choose between any computer system (under $2,000) that I want. Should I choose a Laptop or Desktop, and which one should I get?
I'm going to be using it for Networking, Movies, and Music Mixing.

For the best cost to performance, desktop is the only way to go.

Tax day? :P

Spend it on a Desktop. You have more choice in parts, and upgradable. Unlike a laptop, what you buy is what you get.
