    Most people are so set on a big display, they don't notice that the pixel density is low and the graphics hardware is unable to display 3D or video with any decent throughput.

    A lot of LCDs just don't have the colour gamut to display 24-bit images correctly, let alone 48-bit images. Of course, most people making their money at graphics work should be buying monitors that cost as much as their laptop computer to ensure colour fidelity, yes?
    Thus I think desktop still better.

    But seriously the trend doesn't only apply to laptops. Desktops and parts are also getting cheaper. Rams are getting cheaper, Videocards are too. Several years back, a piece of top end video card would cost almost $1000, but now its just slightly more that 1/2 that price. Most people can afford to run a 2 videocard configuration if not 4. Its the refinement of the manufacturing processes that gives the products a big price cut. Laptops are just one of those products.
