In Pandorapedia, this sentence caught my eyes too. It's a soo cool little element of the Avatar universe.
In my opinion, the reason for this, is the manufacturing. On Pandora, the people have to build most of the equipment by themselves, with techniques like 3D printing, because the interstellar transportation costs are extremely expensive. They get the resources from the mines, and these get processed on the spot. I think they can't do anything too complex like high-powered laser weapons and things like that.
