Set up a container (or chroot but a container is easier to manage)
containing a copy of the root filesystem of the laptop. Tweak make.conf
to add buildpkg and set an appropriate PKGDIR. then you can just enter
the container/chroot and run your world update or whatever else you want
to emerge.

Now export the PKGDIR over NFS and mount it on the laptop and add
--usepkg to the portage default opts in make.conf.
