Yep – up to about 18 or so laptops approx. Changes should update in (close to) realtime. For faster updates of metering etc you can use the multicast mode if your router supports it.
See this from a previous post from Andy (A&H):
The maximum number of connections for any part of the iLive system is 20. However in connecting a surface and touch screen computer to a rack 2 connections are used on each node, therefore I think 18 Editor sessions is the upper limit …. however there is an inherent load placed on the rack with each additional editor connected which will have the affect of lowering the frame rate of the system, not to mention at 18 sessions you are probably over the ethernet limit for 10 Base T and 80211b.

So with that many connections I suspect the surface response would be sluggish.

The multicast work being done for 1.60 should address this issue and allow the full number of connections to not affect the responsiveness of the system, but your 3rd party networking H/W will need to be compliant for this to work.

Hope this helps

Of course multicast is now available so quite a few can connect!
