Laptop or PC???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So here's the situation. I currently have a really crappy computer ( not even able to run minecraft) and I have raised enough money to buy a new one. Here's the thing though. I made a decent list about the parts I could pick to build the computer for about 630 euros. The thing is, I came across a nice "gaming laptop" that had an i5 7300HQ and a GTX 1050. The laptop is not performing half as good as the PC does, but it's more than able to play the titles I want to play. My friends keep telling me that the PC is clearly way more worth it, as it packs more performance and it's future proof, I will be able to upgrade it later on, while the laptop will be stuck forever the way it was built. I get it, the performance SHOULD be the determining factor, but the laptop is portable and would give better asthetics to my setup. Do you think that I should sacrifice performance over asthetics and portability?

 

E.G The laptop was about the same price.

E.G I won't be using the PC or laptop for anything, but gaming and minimal productivity.

The laptop isn't even in the same stratosphere performance-wise, but is portability a real necessity?
