Its been a long time since ive even owned a pc for gaming (yes very sad as I was one of the original TOGers) Anyway I have been play PS4 for years but feel Im missing out on full content games like Ark Survive which I have been playing and others.
So what do I need in a new PC? Im thinking a laptop would be better as I dont really have a space for a desktop. Will this do the job and will I still enjoy it as much as I use to build my own back in the BF1942 days lol
If so best screen size with out getting to big? Dose anyone else us a laptop and are they happy?
I guess start with these basic questions then we can go to recommendations
Starting to lean towards desktop again after talking to a few people can’t seem to make up my mind.
Thanks for the info still looking for advise from people if they use a laptop for gaming and what they think of it.
You can get away with a desktop replacement – calling any gaming laptop a “laptop” is a bit of a joke IMHO, they should be called LapOvens, or TesticleCookers.
If you’re looking to prioritise space over function, I’d probably push you towards a micro-atx build (it’s possible.. The Ridiculously Powerful MicroATX PC – TechSpot).
My cons for any gaming laptop are, (coming from aged experience here – it’s been quite a while since I owned a portable beast);
* You still want an external KB/Mouse – Laptop keyboards are about as ergonomic as a jackhammer, (not to mention the temperatures during a solid gaming session) & Trackpads just plain suck for gaming.
* You’ll probably still want a monitor – Unless you’re looking at a 17″ + laptop, the screen size will be an issue when it comes to detail in FPS games.
* Cooling will be an issue whenever you push the thing to 100%. It’ll either get hot, loud, or both.
* You’ll be unlikely to ever game away from your primary power source anyway, due to all the above.
The only benefit I felt I gained was when it came to LAN time (big or small), not having to cart all my junk with me was awesome+++
I know, not quite what you were looking for, but that’s my experience
