Default Surround sound from laptop blu ray player?

I'm in need of a region free blu ray player option. I know the standalone unit I want, but I'm also in the market for a new laptop. I was considering, if I got a laptop with a blu ray drive, is it possible to still make use of the Dolby surround audio tracks on certain blu rays, by hooking the laptop up to surround speakers, or will the AV receiver require the signals coming from a standalone unit?

PowerDVD can passthrough 5.1/7.1 HDMI or S/PDIF (RCA or Toslink) audio to an AV and have the AV decode the audio. So you have to make sure your laptop has HDMI audio out and/or S/PDIF out. I do this all the time, but with a desktop PC. That's how people with HTPCs do it too.
