Yes, I do it often.

Koha needs to be created the same way on both machines, same password,
and same options.

On your laptop execute on the command line:
  mysqldump -u kohaadmin -p koha > koha.sql
Enter the password that you set up for kohaadmin.
Copy the koha.sql file to machine 2.
On machine 2 in the directory that you copied koha.sql to enter:
  mysql -u kohaadmin -p
Enter the same password
  use koha;
  source koha.sql

I have Koha on my server at home and I use that technique to copy it to
my net book when I go shopping for books.  I also use it to copy the
Koha database from a library that I'm supporting to a test bed at home
in order to test options for them.
