    Laptops aren't good for gaming. They are either too heavy for carrying around, or they heat up fast, make a lot of noise, and eat up the battery fast.

    Most laptops can play lower-end games (slowly and painfully), but that's it.

    Dell XPS are nice if you want Laptop gaming. Just make sure you know what you want and pick those options, the standard set ups they give you are not that great. Alienware I have heard are overpriced. I'm using a Dell laptop to play games such as: CS: Source, DOD: Source, HL2, Doom3, WC3, WoW, GW. and some other random stuff.

    Some laptops can play games fairly well...though often the screen isn't as good as a good Desktop LCD and they are very very hard to upgrade to keep up with gaming..and the only way to have a nearly decent laptop to last 2 years for gaming is to pay over $2000. If you need a laptop for work the best way to do it is buy a cheaper laptop and a moderately priced desktop for gaming which will be far more upgradeable.

    Not true at all... There ain't a game out there that laptops can't play that range around 6-9 lbs and don't overheat...


    Laptops are plenty fine for gaming... There is the Asus G1, or the Dell XPS 1710. Or for something cheaper, look at the Dell E1705 and Sony Vaio FZ/FE. What kinda games are you tryna play??

    Actually, what he said was pretty true, for the most part. Laptops aren't great for gaming. There are plenty of them that can game pretty well, but for the most part, if you want a computer for gaming, then PC is by far the best choice. Laptops aren't built to be super upgradeable like most non-manufactured PCs (meaning building it yourself or buying the parts and having someone build it for you), which can be a big hassle if you want to keep up with PC gaming for more than a year.

    The battery problem isn't an issue if you have it hooked up to the wall, but anywhere else and playing a game on a laptop is going to eat your batteries in a couple hours flat. And usually a decent gaming PC is pretty heavy, because of the bigger graphics card and the parts usually required for decent gaming are bigger than normal PC parts. I would go on, but this thread isn't a debate about what's better, so don't turn it in to one.

    Anyway, if your getting a computer for gaming man, I would definitely go with a personal computer (PC) and not a laptop. By the way, seeing as you misspelled it quite a few times, it's laPtop and not laBtop. As in it sits on your lap.

    Best bet would probably be Dell. Even thought the e-series aren't meant for gaming, you could get on and just add the vid card. Would save you some cash from buying the more expensive XPS series. Also, what type of games do you plan on playing?
