There is no difference between laptop thermal paste and desktop thermal paste. There is actually no distinction made between the two; all thermal paste is sold without a particular use case in mind, besides presumed increases in quality and thermal conductivity - marketing claims that are usually false. Note that for a laptop, you may want to use less paste than you would with a desktop part.
