It's all down to the shape and materials the round is made from, rather than power which is provided by the powder. Power just gives you greater range.

A nail gun, for example uses very little powder, but the ballistic hardened nails will pierce sheet steel and concrete, in one hit. You could literally nail someone to their own Kevlar vest with one. Not much power is needed due to firing at point blank range.

Because a laptop is made from many different layers, soft and hard, it would require a round designed for that purpose.
