Re: Should I switch over to a gaming laptop? Thanks
I agree with MoM for the most part. Unless you want to spend well over $1k on a true gaming or workstation laptop stick with a desktop.
I'll give you an example.
I have a $2100 laptop. Included in the price tag is a 3 year warranty. I spent this much for the focus on raw horsepower for 3D animation, rendering, etc.
This laptop sees just below 80c about 9 hours of the day through work and gaming. It has a well above par cooling system.
Now for me this is ok because I paid for a machine with power and better cooling because this is my laptop that I take to school and use to it's full potential and I also bought the warranty so in case something went wrong I get a new one.
You may not pay as much on a gaming machine but you will spend a lot. A lot more than just having a gaming desktop.
Now let's think. Do you need to take this laptop everywhere you go and game all the time? Is there a reason to? If there is than so be it and I say buy the best darn lappy out there but if it's just for around the house gaming in your free time than stick with the desktop.
