I just read that i thought i needed to share it. The writer makes excellent points for each side, but in the end its all about personal preference.

Thanks for the article I enjoyed reading it. He hit the nail on the head and it was a nice read. As for me so long as my build can handle my internet surfing and very light gaming then I m happy.

you don't get that with the console. If you get a bigger screen, it's because you went out and paid for one.
Lots of people still use ordinary sized CRT TV's with their consoles.

You can also get controllers on PC's. Of the same layout as those on consoles, too.

Plus, there are games where a keyboard and mouse can't be beat.

I bet that wasn't included with the console.

I also bet you could hook that up to a PC video card
