I think advancements in laptop tech (ie. Expresscard) will allow some degree of laptop customization. Right now, as the tech stands, desktops have an important role to fill; but if laptops can be customized easily by the end user after purchase, you will see the desktop market fade.

Right now, I think there is a big enough market for desktops due to the end user customization options, and the PC industry is still making a killing off selling upgrades. I think they would be shooting themselves in the foot if laptops took too much of the market, as they have traditionally been harder to upgrade.
