  • It would seem to be an unwritten rule that only a desktop can really be called a "gaming machine".
    Laptops, even those advertised with the "gaming" moniker, always seem to be looked upon as somehow inferior...
    Granted, they do not have the fastest processor, or the best video card. And more often than not, they are not very well suited for performing hardware upgrades.
    But they are easy to take with you to a LAN (or other) party, and they can function without being plugged into a wall socket for a while.
    Will the gaming PC go the way of the dodo or will it remain the example to be followed by the gaming laptop?

  • As long as there's a market for it, it will stay.
    Bigger threats to PC gaming are console- and mobile games. Not because of the gaming experience they deliver, but because of the profit you can make on those systems.
    If big publishers can make more money on console or mobile, then that's where they will spend their money.
    As time moves on, publishers won't matter as much though, as self-publishing becomes more and more viable (even for big projects) and game developing becomes easier because of better development tools.

    All in all - I don't think PC gaming is going away. Neither will mobile gaming. I'm having a hard time seeing consoles keeping up forever, as their long cycles can't keep up with evolving PCs and mobile platforms.

  • I hate to play on Laptops.
    They have terrible keyboards and the Monitors are to small. (Not to mention that you`re always sitting far too near at the screen because of the aligned keyboard)
    The desktop PC has been proclaimed to be dead for the last 20 years now, first with the Laptops as the killer, later with mobile phones and tablets and it didn't really happen.

  • I don't really go anywhere to justify a high end laptop, but you can definitely get them with enough power to handle whatever games are out there. Granted, they are more expensive, but they're worth it if you have to move around.

  • Thanx BlackAdder for creating such a topic here :D

    Guys I need help to choose a laptop, which will be able to run toxikk on pretty high/ultra settings and should be fine to run UT4 as well as CS:GO. The size does not really matter but the price ofcourse does :) Currently I am looking at MSI GX60, which is fully AMD based laptop with a10-5750 CPU and r9 m290x 2gb GPU.
    However being a "high-end" AMD laptop does not mean "high end" laptop oerall - as I have seen many people critisizing the CPU on this laptop. Can you give some advices please?
    Thank you :)

  • @superman: Just look ... Although the graphics card in the review was a Radeon HD 7970M, both GPUs offer almost exactly the same performance (in fact, the R9 M290x is just a rebranded HD 8970M, which is just a slightly higher clocked 7970M).

    So, indeed, your gaming performance will suffer quite a bit due to the CPU not being able to keep up. I'd recommend going for an Intel i5-based laptop (or an i7, if you have cash to burn). Combined with a suitable GPU (from either AMD or NVIDIA), such a system should blow the MSI GX60 out of the water... But it will probably cost a wee bit more.
