Who says anything about savings?
Just guessing at reasons people might think it makes sense to share parts between the mobile and desktop computer.
You apparently have a particular configuration in mind that would be much more flexible because the desktop is somehow married to the handheld than if the desktop were standalone. I'd like to hear what you have in mind.
In comparing the evolution of the laptop to the evolution of the handheld, I note that the laptop was always just a scaled down desktop. E.g. it ran the same OS and most of the same applications. Every advance was designed to make it more like the former desktop. In contrast, the handhelds have taken off in a separate direction. That should make a difference.
