Which is better please i am planning to get one for my birthday and can't decide on what to get portability is not a problem because if i get the ps4 it comes with GAEMS and if you ask why laptop and not desktop thats because i live currently in a dorm so if i moved out it won't be hard so which is better gaming wise plus it confuses me more cause the ps4 has exclusive games which is awesome like infamous and the order something

Well the laptop is better but the PS4 is 1/5 of the cost. What I would suggest is build a very small mini ITX pc that would be a compromise between the two as you don't need to much mobility if you are thinking of the PS4.

Well, the PS4 doesn't really "come" with games per se -- unless it's a "special edition" one that might have 1 or 2, you're going to have to pay to purchase or download your games, usually at $40-50 each.

The laptop will be more expensive, but will be more versatile. Games will cost about the same for the laptop as the console, but you can also use it to do your class assignments (instead of having to go to the campus computer labs), plus it's just easier for Internet surfing to use a PC than a console.

Games will cost the same as on pc, you can get anything on laptop that you can on pc as it is a very small form factor pc.

I'm still going to stick by the mini ITX desktop but out the 2 as you are doing computer science I would say that the laptop is better for you.
