I don't know whether you can do this automatically but you can do it with VVExport and VVImport - manual.limesurvey.org/Exporting_results#..._and_VVImport_.28.29

Though you will need to make sure that the database and survey looks the same on all laptops - same IDs etc. Otherwise you might get in alot of trouble.

Yep, good point c_schmitz. I assumed the remote installations were just copies of the "master".

I would just join the results tables...
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

If we make changes in survey (add/delete few questions) on server in the mean time while interviewer carrying laptop to respondents. Will interviewer still be able to export data of the questions that match on laptop and server.
Survey Designer and Programmer
"I always suggest to have a group by group display layout and create a seprate group for each question. This will be extra work but you will get flexiblity to create your question by using more than more lime survey question types."

How should this work? You need to make sure that each computer contains the exact same survey, otherwise you will get a lot of data chaos.

Limesurvey can not syncronize the surveys on the different computers.

For this, you need to run the survey online from one server.
