You will then need to authenticate to each network resource with your domain username and password.

You might as well join the domain. Your looking at more frustration if not.

What I usually do in this situation is to make the laptop workgroup the same as the domain name. This will allow you to see and browse machines on the domain but in order to access shared resources you will need to authenticate where the username field would be domainname\username. The username would have to be a valid domain account.
