I agree laptops are harder from a logistics perspective, but I disagree that it results in it generally just working for the desktop users. I also think desktops are harder from a supporting all the different types of hardware perspective.

Desktop hardware and laptop hardware tend to be so different. Laptops are generally a generation behind on motherboard chipsets and processors. They tend to have less variety of hardware when it comes to network, video, and sound cards. Keyboards on laptops are pretty much always done the same way since they are built-in. Mice on laptops are almost always trackpads, since they are built-in. Other cards come out different too, PCI/PCIe vs Cardbus/ExpressCard/USB.
