Gaming Versus: Desktop Vs. Laptop gaming?

Let's hear some pros and cons to whether Laptop gaming can be matched with todays power housed Desktops.

Crazy thing, I saw a Laptop at a Computer show playing Gears of War -DX10 full prefs, beautiful and ran like glass, smoove baybay.

Thanks guys for the feedback, expert-smarties.
