No, triangles are only actual APs. Laptops are represented by the XO
'stickfigure' icon. If there are no other laptops within range, an XO
will not show up on your neighborhood view. That is to say, you
yourself will not show up on your own neighborhood view.

They *should* discover each other if they both connect to the same and
are on the same subnet. You can make them mesh together by:
1. putting the two laptops into ad-hoc mode.
2. assign a random SSID to each laptop (does not have to be the same)
3. assign an IP address of the same network to both laptops
(192.168.1.x / 255.255.255.0)
