Probably cheaper yet (and certainly simpler) is one "heavy duty" box and a
cheap (perhaps diskless) box as an X terminal.

Actually I was after cheap *and* portable, commuting between two places with a laptop, both places having an extra monitor/keybd/mouse, since there would always be two of us.

The difference between 2 laptops or 2 monitors, etc. and 1 laptop might not be all that significant.
