Default Which would you rather have Gaming Desktop or Laptop

Personally I would take the gaming desktop, unless you can find a good laptop that isnt a rip off. If you think about it though, you could get a budget gaming desktop and a ps3 for a good gaming laptop.

I'd take the desktop.

Even the best gaming laptops aren't as good as decent gaming desktops.

Do you want us to help build one or what?

If so, what is your budget?

Allright, cool.

A bit confused though. Why did you make this thread if you arent looking to buy? I'm just curious.

It depends. I spend more time on my notebook then I do on my desktop.

If I could get a laptop that cools as well as an equally outfitted desktop I would prefer a laptop.

Desktop. Enough said.

Unless it needs to be portable; then that's different.
