No No No and NO! Do not get a laptop if it's going to be used as your main pc. Only if you need it for the portability. For example you travel a lot of move with work a lot etc. if it is going to be used as a desktop, then get a desktop

laptops will always be lesser to desktops. especially if you are trying to be hardcore or stretching the lifetime out. When it comes down to it you are buying a laptop because you want something small and portable and willing to except the performance sacrifice that comes with that.

If this is just going to be sitting on your desk all day long, ever day than a desktop would be a better choice.

The only reason i want laptop is
1) My current desktop monitor has a tick vertical yellow line at edge left which is a bit annoying while gaming
2) I want to change the place i game on serve times like today on living room tomorrow on my bedroom and so on
3) I don't like to be watched while gaming

You don't have a desk in your bedroom?

When I wanted privacy while on my pc I went to staples and got a $75 desk to go in my room

i have a desk on bedroom and barely someone enters it only if one of my family needed me in something
but the monitor is 1280 X 1024 its clear and rich colors
but the vertical line at the left edge is annoying on dark games, websites .etc

Well, The desktop has GPU which is massively better by 125% due to GD benchmarks
I think i got it
These laptop won't last long with hardcore gaming it will die from overheating
cheap plastic ain't?
well at least 3 years?

I don't see this laptop is suited for long-term and hardcore gaming, just for light gaming Minecraft LOL Dota 2 .etc for few hours, cheap plastic and non-removable battery and too thin like ultrabook (Which surely will produce insane heat as i saw some of reviews say its overheats real quick while gaming)
If i did game on it like desktop it would die within 1 year
