Trading a pc for a laptop.Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys,i thought this was a good place to ask so here it goes.

Recently i've gotten an offer for my pc.Its a prebuilt i5 3470 and a 1050 ti that i chucked in there just so i can game.So a guy offered me an hp laptop that has 8gbs of Ram an i3-8100 cpu,integral gpu and i believe 120GB SSD.Is that a trade that is worth,i play games like league of legends,Rocket league,hence i never rly bothered to upgrade my system.Oh an if it helps the laptop has a touch display.So is this a good trade or na?I dont rly know much about laptops since i never had one but a 8th gen processor sounds good.

Anyways thats all i hope ya'll can help me

That laptop can't game, what are ou expecting it to be used for?

 

Outside  of it being a crappy deal for you, did you really think this through?

Its only a i3 8th gen without a real gpu so its 2000x slower then a older i5 with 1050ti and u will not be able to play any games at decent settings even lol will struggle in teamfights etc on that onboard gpu

CPU is better but lack of dedicated GPU makes it an awful tradeoff

 

Also, I've heard bad stories about anything HP related

The Funny part is that there is no mobile i3 8100 and as far as i know the mobile i3s only have 2 cores so the older i5 would even beat that
