Screen on laptop vs desktop?

Hi all, I'm looking for a pc for photo and video editing (softwares will be darktable/gimp, while for video Davinci resolve or similar). No need for a professional level pc (I don't live off this), but I'm willing to spend around 2000€/$ to buy something that will last for a while.

I still cannot decide if to go with a laptop or a desktop. I'm aware with a good budget you can get excellent laptops that will work well for video and photo editing, but with a laptop you will anyway buy a larger external screen, so in a way it feels like you waste money by buying a very good 2000+€ laptop where part of the cost has been invested in a screen which will not be used much. What's your view on this?

Also, if you want a powerful laptop (and at least 15") you are likely sacrifing on weight and portability, so it kind of defeats the reasons to buy a laptop in the first place....?
