Most importantly: Ergonomics.

Gaming on laptops is literally painful and damaging unless you opt to use an external Display/Keyboard/Mouse which sorta kills the whole purpose of being portable in the first place.

Don't forget even high end laptop GPUs are significantly slower than the desktop versions.

And they chew through batteries. Don't forget the heat either.

slawter, nekro & the others i didnt sell my rigs but i just left home to study in the States & i couldnt bring 'em with me (its a long story). I dont even have enough time to play so the laptop should be just fine to keep up with the new releases. I'm not happy with that at all but it'll do for the moment.

I have a wireless mouse, everything else works fine. As for storage issues, NAS is not too slow for me. I can stream videos from it just fine aswell as load music from it.

And? I still can play most games just fine at almost max settings (Crysis so far the only game I can't max out) so it's not that much slower...

Well, I'm really looking forward to playing this one. I highly enjoyed Oblivion, but mainly for the tons of side quests. I saved the main quest for last and it was simple and quite short as you know. Well, most Bethesda titles turn out good regardless.

There is no "and", I was just saying they're significantly slower.

People say "I have an 8800 in my laptop" as if its equal to a desktop, but they're getting performance that is closer to an 8600 GTS or 7900GT. If that's good enough, that's great, but they still aren't anywhere near equal in gaming performance to a mid range desktop.

8800GTS on the Laptop is as good as probably a 7800GTX, I would say its far better then 8600GTS.
