Please excuse my grammar.
I am currently owning a custom gaming PC that I assembled last October. The PC is everything I would want in a gaming computer. It can run Crysis I think around 50FPS or more on MAX everything (with exception to AA, haven't tested in a while). Beside Crysis, every other game run smooth all on max setting. For example NBA 2k10 run around 95FPS and is simply gorgeous. With the decrease in computer gaming technology, I estimate that my computer can run any game on max for the next decade. Pretty much my computer is everything a gamer need or want, and is as good as some of the mid to high end Alienware.
However there has not been any new games that have spark my interested and as such the computer is just sitting there. PC only games are very rare nowadays so I know which less emphasis on PC technology, my computer (while not top of the line by any mean) can play any games for the next few years without any hiccup because I build it on the fact that it is everything I want and not having unnecessary technology that I don't need. It a beauty of a beast but with lack of games coming out, I feel like it a waste just to let it sit there.
With that said, I am thinking of selling it and buying a gaming laptop instead. Before I do this I need some feedback and suggestion from you guys. First off I am thinking of buying this laptop: Newegg.com - TOSHIBA Qosmio X505-Q892 NoteBook Intel Core i5 460M(2.53GHz) 18.4" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
Also I'm not sure if the GTX 460M is better than the Ati Radeon HD 5850 or 5870?
I feel that with a laptop I am do everything I can with a PC and more. I don't actually have to sit in my room and instead I can take my laptop anywhere. I can still have fun while still be able to go outside more. A gaming laptop is such a portable device and even without many pc games coming out (I could be wrong) I tend to do things on a laptop that I don't bother with a PC mainly because I don't like to be inside or sitting in one spot for too long. Things such as watching movies, youtube, and other various things that I don't even bother with my PC.
The laptop above I listed is a little bigger than I want. I am looking for a 17inches laptop with a high end graphic card (good gaming laptop in general). However the con of this laptop is it overheat quickly, and I wonder if there is any fan I can buy for it?
Once again I know quite a few things about Gaming PC, but not much about laptop. What are the negative aspect of owning a laptop?
P.S I can also list down my spec for my PC if anyone wants to know.
