Easy, you can get a desktop a little bigger than a network router, or in a small cube style box.
Can you take a photo of the space you have to work with?
Desk space?
The laptop isn't bad, it isn't great either though.
Better can easily be had for the money in a desktop.

If you haven't looked into Mini-ITX PC's yet, try researching them and perhaps you could fit a PC after all.

If It's really not possible, yes there are decent enough options for gaming on laptops.

Options, both have wifi.
What's your monitor situation?
Is Ethernet connection an option?
