Setup new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate

I'm setting up a new laptop which includes installing Windows 7 Ultimate, Visual Studio 2010 Pro with SQL and Office 2010.  The machine will be connected to the office domain sometimes but not always.   I plan on keeping databases on the local machine while in the development stage and then migrating them to one of our servers when we go into production.  I'll also be running the Office 2010 Suite including Outlook which needs to connect to our Exchange Server for email, contacts, etc.

I’m concerned about permissions particularly for SQL Server and Outlook when I'm not connected to the domain.  Is it better to setup an machine account on the domain and then install all the software or should I install all the software under a local machine account and then attach the machine to the domain?

I've had problems before not being able to access certain features on SQL Mangement Studio after connecting to the database. Is it better to have the DB owner be a local account or a domain account?  What about the management of the SQL instance?

Thanks

i guess if you will use a DB owner domain account then you will face problems when you are not connected to the domain
There are multiple instance tools available
use any of those
