If you are into gaming, a gaming computer can be the best thing you can go for, and most people prefer a gaming PC or a gaming desktop, as desktops are flexible, and you can upgrade or change the components any time you want, without worrying about anything, as long as the new hardware is compatible. But if you love playing games on the go, a laptop can be a good alternative for you, if not better than a dedicated gaming desktop. Gaming laptops are pre-configured, and if you don’t want to go through the trouble of choosing the best CPU, the motherboard compatible with it, and other complex aspects, gaming laptops are worth going for.
Besides that, most gaming laptops are also quite flexible, and you can change the RAM, SSD, and other elements anytime, without breaking compatibility.
