You never know…you can't charge and carry around a desktop obviously.
They're basically the same, the only major difference is one is portable and the things b1b mentioned. If you want a portable device, get a laptop. If you basically want to keep something on your desk, get a desktop. It's easier modifying desktops too, imo.
