well.. they are costly mainly because of the company. Such as HP Laptops will be more expensive than a emachines. Cuz Hp "is the brand" of laptops as they think of themselfs. But they always brea down. Acer is a good brand. More reliable. and not as expensive

Parts are smaller and everything is made to be portable and energy efficient.

You build alaptop, then you will understand why its so $$$. Laptops aren't the easiest things to build, and the parts cost a LOT MORE. becuase they have to be lighter weight, and smaller which is really hard when you want a desktop power in a somthing a 1/10 of the size.
