I'm in the same sitation as yours. Currently I use my laptop less frequently 
than the desktop PC, so I update it about twice a month.
Althought I get a lot of systemd errors at boot, when I type:

$ systemctl --failed --all

I get:

0 loaded units listed.

On the desktop PC I don't have this problem.
So I wonder if that is due to the low frequency of me updating the PC or 
something else...

Anyway I think the idea of the snapshots is good if applied server-like or 
I-don't-bother-changing-config-files-after-updates systems (which is something 
that I actually do, quite often).
