Wow! What a loaded question!
Laptops or Notebook computers are designed and built differently from desktops, for obvious reasons.
Notebook computers tend to be subject to a lot of abuse that a desktop is not designed to take. I have a client in the construction industry who dropped his ToughBook off of a second storey building frame, and it bounced! It still works! (DON'T try it, just see if your's will do the same thing!)
Your biggest issue is the cooling system. Desktops in general, are more open inside the case, and have larger fans capable of greater air movement. Desktops also have the option of installing secondary and or more advanced cooling features.
Notebooks, however, rarely have that option. The CPU's and GPU's used in notebooks have to go with what they have from the factory. Some notebooks will have dual cooling fans installed. Many share the heatsink and cooling system between the CPU, GPU and or the controller chip. Because of this, notebook chips have to be capable of withstanding higher temperatures than desktop chips.
