Off the domain....
When you are off the domain you have a couple of options... leaving the laptop in a workgroup mode and RWW'ing back to a desktop, or you can log in with cached credentials. Most default servers have a setting such that laptops or any domain devices that aren't physically attached (or see the domain) to the domain can log into a 'phantom' domain. The profile is still there, and offline files are there and what not.
I'll write more on this...but the bottom line is just because a laptop can't be tethered to a domain is not a big thing these days in a mobile workplace.
