The latest notebooks from Sony and many other manafacturers have a massive 16.1" TFT, Mobile P4 2.4 chip (40-50 watts), 60GB HD, CD/CDRW combo drive, and all this is powered from a external PS. So how comes a desktop PC cannot be powered externally?

The notebook metioned above must draw quite a lot of power considering it is powering the TFT panel too. If a desktop PC had two external PS then it could quite adequetly power most systems. One PS could power the mobo and the other for things like HD, Optical drives etc.
