Desktop sheer raw power just can't be beat, but I've come to love being able to lug laptops around, even if I do end up having them plugged in all the time.

Laptop, because it is portable. And when I ever need a big screen or additional drive etc, I just connect it via USB or HDMI (dual monitors connected.)

Firstly, I am a desktop user, so I am not "defending" laptops

But laptops can absolutely be upgraded! Just takes a little more work. We upgrade specs all the time in our older laptops here at work. And no, not just the RAM either

Most laptops are limited to RAM and CPU upgrades

The life span of a computer all depends on how the owner maintains the aforementioned computer
