    Out of curiosity, what games are you playing on the platforms mentioned? You mean you have the Kindle Fire tablet, correct?

    Yes, there are quite a few I play on Kindle at least occassionally. Most are object finding games, but I have Vikings War of Clans on there, and Texas Hold em Poker,Candy Crush, Bowling as well as a few others. I don't play any of them everyday. It is convenient to game on the Kindle. I also play games on the laptop and phone.

    Get a PC for gaming instead of a Desktop. Desktop computers take up more space than is convenient; Laptops are portable and you can always charge them if they're losing power. There's nothing like gaming in the privacy of your own room without any distractions.


    Besides, the number of people using desktop computers in their homes is decreasing. Why spend more money for something that's going to be stationary and that you'll probably have to share most of the time?

    Be independent; Get a PC.

    A desktop is generally cheaper than a laptop and provides good value for money. Having a PC does not mean you must share it or place in a public corner in your home. I would say get both if possible but choose according to the user needs.

    I believe that both laptop and desktop have cons and pros, If I consider the budget then I would choose nice a desktop with an HD grafics and good resolution but if I consider to bring my games wherever I go then I would add some money and get a laptop for gaming I think it's a hard to choose question.

    I couldn't think of anything worse than me using a laptop for gaming, I just couldn't do it, whether I had a mouse or keyboard plugged in separately. I couldn't game on a screen so small and I couldn't justify spending that much money on a good laptop to miss out on big specs. I know a lot of them have some real good specs, but for example with the Asus Predator (I think?) it has a 1080 but plays a resolution of 1080p? Just feels like a waste.

    I've tried gaming on a laptop but it just doesn't feel the same as sitting at a desk with your desktop.

    Definitely desktops for gaming. Laptops are quite useful for moving to other places, but it's just not fit for gaming.. at least, the ones under $1k prices.

    Desktops are way better then gaming laptops, gaming laptops even cost more at time depending on how much your Desktop costs. Also Desktops can run games and other programs faster then a laptop.

    I prefer my laptop for easy accessibility. I can move around with my laptop and I love to play games everywhere, I wouldn't need to wait until I get home to play and it quite comfortable for me to play with my laptop.

    For me, I'll go for desktops because you can upgrade it anytime you want. However, I am a laptop user and I can say that I am satisfied. My aunt brought this to me when I need it for my thesis and now I am using this for both surfing the internet and playing games. I think a laptop can also be good at gaming but they are more prone to overheating issue.

    Desktops are cheaper, laptops are portable. I think, the answer lies to which a person would choose. Indeed, desktops can have high specs with lower cost if you are that good with hardware. But you cannot bring it anywhere you want, nor can you use it if in case of power interruption. On the other hand, laptops can be brought anywhere, even without electricity as you can charge it. But it is really very expensive, especially if you want a gaming laptop which in country cost around 70k -100k php.

    And so, if you're a gamer with the budget, go for laptops. Otherwise, build your own desktop for a cheaper price.

    I haven't used desktops in a while, and the laptops I've used are fairly good in performance and I don't really see any problems with playing games in it, be it offline or online. I prefer laptops because they are more compact and I can play everywhere I go, being the constant traveling person that I am.
