Well, laptops have outsold desktops since around 2003. Your friends and grandfather are not "most" of computer users if they are doing things that can't be done on laptops.

I know, myself, I have 3 different CAD programs on my computer, not to mention several programming languages. I'm not alone in this.
You may not be alone in that, but surely you don't think that is anywhere NEAR the norm for anything approaching "most".
