I think the "laptops are the harder case" is true for power management
but false for pretty much everything else. Very few laptops drive
complex devices because laptops are not that extensible and laptops
manufacturers prefer limited cheap general purpose hardware over more
complete expensive less general solutions. Also because laptops are
shut down/disconnected regularly they are not used for long-running,
background nor network-exposed computing).
