That is a good reason.  You might want to look into mDNS (aka
zeroconf) for that purpose; I wouldn't be surprised if your device
supports it.  (Nor if it doesn't. :-)

Also, you could always run a DHCP server on your notebook. :-)  True,
you have to keep the config file in sync, but there's only one.  Yes,
I know, "that's cheating!" ;-)

For bonus points (possibly including a Nobel Prize :-) figure out how
to keep only one copy of the config file on the NAS.
