Parsifal might be getting a gaming laptop
« on: February 19, 2017, 01:26:04 PM »
Since I will be moving overseas in just a few months, I am thinking about getting a gaming laptop so I can keep playing Star Citizen once I no longer have a desktop.

This seems like the best value for money that I can find. The specs aren't mind-blowing, but they're still an upgrade from my current desktop, particularly with regard to the GPU. I don't want to spend much more than that since if I end up settling down somewhere in a year or two, I'll build a brand new gaming PC and the laptop will become obsolete.

Windows Subsystem for Linux actually makes using Windows tolerable, so I don't see what the big deal is with that.

Why will you not have a desktop once you move?  No space to store it?

I haven't decided for certain if I'm moving permanently yet or not. There's no sense in taking any more luggage than I need just yet. I'll either be selling my desktop or putting it into storage in Sydney.
