Default Re: Desktop or laptop for hostel?

I have done some pricing recently on a gaming grade laptop, and I am disappointed at how much the 555 laptops run let alone the 580m's. I was hoping to drop out of desktop gaming and get a quieter and cooler laptop, but when the 2k laptop with 580m cost twice as much as a pc with a *60 gtx with the same performance and half the cost..

That said, if you are going to be spending alot of time away, spending the extra quid for a gaming laptop may be worth it, even if it is expensive. Just make sure you either net a service plan with it or use a credit card with automatic extended warranty.
