    Default laptop or desktop?

    Im in the market for a new pc, my old computer is filled with garbage and the graphics card was absolute the day it was bought.

    Im looking to get a new pc for the use of gaming, emulation, and cpu intense tasks (running unity3d and various other debugging programs)

    But imstuck on wheather i should get a laptop or desktop. I have the playstation 3d monitor laying around that isnt being used and i would like to be able to use it to its glory, but at the same time i want to be able to take it to a friends house or georgia whenever i visit family.

    If i went the laptop road i would want to be able to easily hook it up to my monitor with as long as it doesnt end up getting in the way, and a second monitor would be nice.

    but with a desktop i can get more for my money and easily upgrade it as i see it fit. (plus i dont want to exceed a budget of 600 dollars)

    so what is your suggestion?

    You're going to be way more bang for your buck if you go with a desktop. But, obviously it will be really tough moving it around if you want to. It's really all just personal preference.

    Go for the laptop if you think your going to need it or want to bring it with you. You also got to think 600 will only get you a decent pre-built desktop, unless your think of building a custom one of course.

    Ps: Georgia I see. Maybe one day you'll drop by old retro's house. :cupcake:

    You can still build a decent desktop tower and lug it around you just gotta know what to get. Build a lanparty based machine if you're wanting mobility.
