What resolution are you playing at on both desktop and laptop? I'd wager that the laptop is playing games at a lower resolution which can have dramatic effects on performance.

the laptop is 1920 x 1080 resolution

desktop is 2560 x 1440 resolution

the laptop is only a 13inch screen though so i usually game at lower resolution If i can't see a difference between 1080p and lower resolutions on the laptop due to the smaller screen

That still seems quite high for that laptops card... What games are you 'maxing' out at 30fps+? What do you get in crysis 3 at ultra? How are you monitoring your frames?

I mean a 460 is a great card but its mid tier not high end by any means.

Using Fraps or in game benchmarks

Laptop:

Crysis 3 Ultra on 1920 x 1080 getting average 20 fps (no anti aliasing) - unplayable
Crysis 3 High on 1920 x 1080 getting average 28 fps (no anti aliasing) - playable

Desktop:

Crysis 3 Ultra on 2560 x 1440 getting average 16 fps (no anti aliasing) - unplayable
Crysis 3 Ultra on 1920 x 1080 getting average 38 fps (no anti aliasing) - playable
Crysis 3 High on 1920 x 1080 getting average 44 fps (with anti aliasing) - playable

Yeah that looks about right. 28fps vs 44fps when the desktop has AA while the laptop does not. You're looking at double the power fairly easily.

Its best not to worry about the technicalities though. So long as you can run the game acceptably, its shouldn't be an issue. Games vary wildly with their requirements even if they are released in the same month, so chances are a laptop with that sort of power can run the majority of games released for some time yet. I mean you can even run Crysis 3 at decentish settings still so I can't see the laptop becoming obsolete for newer games anytime soon.

Thanks this was my main concern of laptops that they get outdated way to quickly. I use this laptop for Uni mainly with some light gaming when i travel around.

Sticking to desktop from now on way cheaper and much more power. Thanks for you help though much appreciated.
