Why are laptops so expensive versus desktops?

I've had fun using my very own first laptop, but now it's really getting old and needs an upgrade.
I'm trying to make a list of pros and cons on whether I should invest in another laptop or a desktop.
But, I say to myself: "why?"
Why is there a price difference?
1) Is it because they have to make the parts portable? On a side note, are the parts used in laptops low-powered as opposed to parts in desktops? They can't put a real Core Duo chip in a laptop as it consumes a lot of power, so they put in a more energy efficient chip which isn't as powerful. Is that correct?
Why does a desktop seem like a "sturdier" choice?
2) Because, it is stationary and away from you? I know my laptop feels flimsy the fan is wearing down, and the internal HD is crappin' out fast.
I recently used a Toshiba Satellite laptop and it feels surprisingly solid as well as the Mac Books etc..
..but, I feel that I need a good sturdy desktop so I can maybe upgrade it in the future too.
What do you guys think?
