Re: laptops on kijiji?

The main reason is that they are modular, so if the graphic card, CPU, Power Supply Unit etc.. goes pop, you can replace/upgrade.
Actually I was thinking more that the miniaturisation required in laptops is not necessary in PCs etc so you don't get the fragility of flexible-boards, micro-connectors etc and nor do you get the overheating/stressing of components caused by the miniaturisation.
Then there's the human factor - laptops tend to get bumped and knocked more than desktops.

Of course, as you say, if something does go wrong on a desktop then you can usually replace just that component.

Of course, there are exceptions with laptops but it is a bit of a gamble.
