In terms of everyday computing and school usage. I have a desktop already, but it's kinda old and such ( by a few years, I think), could use an upgrade and such, but I kinda also want a laptop. Do you need a high end laptop/desktop for gaming?

a good gaming laptop will always cost more than a gaming desktop but i prefer laptops because I need space in my house. If you need it for school then get a laptop but most would say get a gaming desktop and just get a cheap laptop for school.

A gaming desktop will be cheaper than a gaming laptop and such. Depends what Kind of performance you want and how much money you wish to spend and such.

You could get an updated desktop and cheap yet reliable laptop, or get a giant gaming laptop with 1 hour of battery life and constant 60C heat on any surface. Both would cost about the same.

Well, this is the laptop in question.

No that laptop is really crappy for gaming. You need to spend a lot more then that for a good laptop

Should be fine for the usage you stated just don't expect to play modern games on it.

Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??

If you are a student and want to game the best is a combo. getting a decent gaming PC with a bare bones labtop on the side just for school work.

Gaming laptops are power hogs and a bit bulky for everyday type requirements, Also I pretty much need to have it plunged in at all time defeating the purpose of portability. My gaming labtop is 17". It's more portable in a sense if I go to relatives/friends house or move base to a hotel during business trips I can play my PC games.

But if you want to bring labtop to the park, on the train, to cafe to work etc a lot then it's better to get normal labtop/netbook or ultrabook (I have one because it offers almost 9 hours battery life perfect for average work day and never have to bring my charger).
