QuestionSimple one. Should I host my own site? Pin

Need an opinion. I have two websites that probably get well over 200 hits a year at least, if you include my visits. I have them hosted at a cheap ISP (reliable though) It costs me about $90 a year... I think. They provide free Access and MySQL 4.x. The only drawback is that I am a web developer and one of the sites is a portfolio site and it's a hassle that I don't have even the most basic SQL Server available ($50 a month from the ISP). I was considering hosting my own site. I can get an IP address for $20 a month, so that would be a minor expense. I could get a cheapish notebook and put a small SSD drive in it so it would always be on with minimal power. With just Windows 7 Pro, I think I could have 10 simultaneous connections (gonna rule the web).
Sew... Can you suggest any pluses or drawbacks that I didn't think of?

PS. Reading the "Hosting and Servers" comment, I'll mention that years back I used to work for XXCal Test Labs. That was a place to work with smokey hardware. One test was to test 7 SCSI devices on a single controller. It produces unimaginable heat. On the other side, I know from experience how long it takes to dry a PC back into working order after your manager throws a cup of water into it. I also remeber when we gor the first "Yamato" notebook to test. That's "Thinkpad" to you. Those were fun days.
Heck, I was working for Juggy Tandon when he started selling the first 10 Megabyte harddrive. The Winchester! Twice as big as his first 5 Meg one. Ya know, the burn in room in Simi Valley got hot one weekend and we fried 120 drives. I could go on, but you'd call me a fogey.
