I have a laptop at the moment, although I like it I would rather a desktop. A lot of the cons you mentioned with desktops are actually non-existent if you build your own. If you have a wall mounted or open-air design it basically cuts down on the space. Also by using a mini ITX case you can save space AND make it somewhat portable. Also building an all in one desktop (which is basically a laptop without an integrated keyboard and trackpad) it can be ultra portable. But you can't really get around the overheating issues with laptops, gaming laptops even more so because they do have graphics cards.
