True opinions? Do you think they are creations that were never meant to be, or do you think they serve a legitimate purpose and/or alternative to traditional PC gaming?


I sold my gaming laptop for 850 bucks btw, and I can truly see their allure

I'd say that it totally depends on your definition of "gaming" or the quality of said "gaming".

They do serve a purpose, but you're paying a premium for them.

My honest opinion.

Great for when you need a system to game on that you can bring to different locations, when you spend a lot of time in different places.

However, they are very expensive for their performance, and you are kind of limited when it comes to upgrading. Because of these things I would only recommend them to people who truly need something that allows them to gamin in different places. For everyone else I would suggest a desktop. Even when you need a laptop, you are better off builing a high-end desktop and buying a midrange laptop. That would still be in the pricerange of the "gaming laptops".

Basically, what I am saying is that it is a niche product.

Don't bother. They get outdated far too fast unless you're willing to spend 2000$+ on one, and with that kind of money you could have easily built a beast of a desktop.
What's wrong with the world these days is people don't have any common sense...

They are nice to have things, but not something I would pay for unless it had specs at a price that was on par with a desktop or cheaper. Then I'll just use it as my desktop and hook my monitor to it along with a keyboard + mouse.

If you are *never* home, they might be worth it.

Otherwise, just get a $200 tablet and play dumb flash games when you're out.
