Default Labtop vs. Desktop

I have a few questions. I am thinking about building a computer this winter. It will be the 1st computer I have ever built and am right now looking for what components I am going to get.

A question came up that has not been answered and I have not found much information on it on Google. Is building a desktop computer different then building a Labtop? I know it's different but is there anything so different I need to be aware of?

You can't build a laptop. Some places might let you specify the parts you want installed on it, but they don't sell individual parts to build a laptop...

*edit*
I guess you wheren't refering to the lunchbox/luggable/portable computers? They use standard stuff like any other ATX, just might have some motherboard size limits, just as would any smaller case...
