Is there any downsides to the laptop?

In a dollar for dollar case, a laptop is weaker than a desktop because you're paying extra money for the small form factor of the laptop and the custom cooling. Idk the specs of the proposed trade so you should fix your links with making them hyperlinks so I can visit the urls.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

When the GTX 1060 is no longer powerful enough to run the games you want you'll have to buy a new laptop instead of just upgrading the video card in your desktop.

 

Usually you can get a couple of video card upgrades out of a CPU if it was decently powerful to begin with.  You can't do that with a laptop but you get the portability.

If you are a gamer... then HELL NO. Desktop > Laptop for gaming. You get a system that is relevant longer because you can upgrade it. You do not have that option with a laptop. Portability is good for school and work... if you are considering it for that reason then just buy a cheap laptop for that and keep your desktop.
