Why power outlets are below the desk?

I have one pain in my life that I go through twice a day. The pain of plugging in laptop cable in the morning and taking it out in the evening. For some reason all carpenters/designers seem to find power outlets hidden below the desk more appropriate instead of providing one over the desk.

The reason is offices or the modern offices were invented in the era of desktops and it made sense to keep all the wires hidden below. Once connected, no one needs to touch them ever. Unfortunately most of world has moved on to laptops, but the modern office design has become a little obsolete.
