These days the average Joe is favoring portability over power. Laptops definitely have more versatility when raw horsepower isn’t a factor. Gamers, however, are a different story. No matter how far gaming laptops have come, they still pale in comparison to the benefits of the gaming desktop PC. The advantages are numerous. A gaming PC is massively more powerful than a gaming laptop at the same price point. A gaming PC can be upgraded to keep up with the times. The vast majority of laptops cannot be upgraded other than the RAM and hard drive, thus locking you in until you buy yet another new laptop. A gaming PC gives you the flexibility of a better, larger monitor. Yes, you can attach an external monitor to your laptop, but then you’ve spent needless dollars on your built-in display. The gaming PC offers better ergonomics compared to your traditional laptop setup. Here are the best deals we’ve found on bona fide gaming desktops. We will update this article regularly.
