hiello everyone :) i am soon to be a college student shifting to canada. and i am really confused as to should i just get a light gaming laptop or use my netbook for college and build a pc. i have been a console gamer but i've always wanted to play on a pc. Now that my college is about to start i am really confused whether i should get the acer aspire e15 which i will have shipped from US since it costs almost double in canada. or use netbook for college and get a pc for around 1100-1200 CAD..including a monitor and all peripherals any help would be appreciated. :) also heres my config for the system which i think is pretty nice

As a recent graduate - use a netbook for note taking in class build a PC for gaming :) - Even a Chromebook would be fine for notetaking.
