It's technically faster, but it won't play the latest games at 1080p in 6 years from now, like the consoles will.

Once consoles try to start pushing higher tech graphics, I doubt they'll be playing games in full 1080p either.

Does it even matter? Consoles take full advantage of the specs inside the box where as for a PC its completely different.

You can have the same specs for a PC and a console and games will be better for that console.

Yeah, yeah, we know the consoles will run games decently for longer, and that a equal PC will not run games as well as a console in 5 years. However, I really think people overestimate the consoles' ability to optimized. I mean, they'll get double performance, that's about it. By then, equivalent PCs should be multiple times faster. It'll be fine for now, and the near future.

Ok you guys are completely wrong! I looked into it and this laptop is light years faster than the new consoles. It's not even close.

Though I will give you guys credit that games will be optimized for the consoles so in a few years it might grow closer- but this laptop will be able to play any next gen game at higher or at least the same specs throughout the length of this consoles life span
