No one said you can not game on a laptop. There are plenty of laptops available that have pretty good performance.

The critique you find here on "gaming laptops" revolves around them not being upgrade-able, them being very expensive, and them usually being so large and heavy that they are in many ways inferior to cheaper solutions for an everyday laptop.

They are a niche product, because for the cost of a high end gaming laptop you can build a PC and buy a cheaper laptop and be better off. Unless you actually need a portable gaming device that you can use in different locations. That does happen, I owned one myself when I used to live in dorms. Both because of limited space and because I traveled a lot. But unless necessary, they are a subpar solution.

A laptop has been my only PC the past 18 months. I've yet to play a game it can't run, but with a 560m as my graphics card that'll likely end next year.

I plan on making a desktop my next PC though.

Exactly. I used a high performance laptop in college, but that thing wasn't very portable for a laptop.
Now I have my gaming PC for all my high performance needs and a tablet for all of my on-the go needs. I also have a portable Logitech Bluetooth keyboard for those occasions when I plan to type a lot when I'm out.
If my needs change I'll probably see about getting a new laptop, but for now my tablet fulfills that niche.

My laptop plays games fairly well, doesn't have the power or airflow of my desktop though.

My brothers have been gaming on a laptop for like 5 years or so, the same system. I know it's on a 9800gtx I think. They don't seem to mind too much, and only have found a couple of games that are not fun to play on it.

"I've yet to play a game it can't run" doesn't mean he owns those games, nor does it mean he has 1080p. He didn't even say anything about graphics or performance either...
