So lets see, you are recommending to not get a certain brand, without any kind of facts or commentary to back it up, and I bet that you have never even owned one. Don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

You should build yourself a PC, get the items from newegg.com and just post around on various forums to see if the stuff you chose works well.

I personally love my laptop and would not want to trade it in for a desktop even if it is 10 times better... The ability to take it around with you is amazing

The arguement that you can't game isn't always valid either: I'm playing UT3 at 1280*800 with my C2D T7300 with 2GB Ram & a GeForce 8600M.

I used to play CS:S on my Toshiba laptop. (2.0 dual core cpu, 256mb graphics card and 1gb of ram) with msn and all those running.

Puff you can play CSS on virtually any dual core computer. You could even get away using a intergrated graphics card. I ran Source on a ATI HD2600 Pro on 1080p resolution with max settings and still nearly get 200fps. And that was a Mac. Pwnd comet! Now days laptops and desktop are rather similar peformance size. Basically your looking at price and screen real estate.

If it was me....I would most definantly build my own PC, you can ussually find good parts from newegg. Best of all it will all be costume made suited perfectly to your taste.

Unfortunately he doesn't live in the US. It is the cheaper option though

Wrong. I have a MacBook Pro and I absolutely love it (enough so I bought another as a gift).

If mobility is a big factor in your decision, then go for a laptop. Dell XPS are good.

If you aren't concerned about moving around, then for the same price you can get a much better desktop. I'd personally build my own as others have mentioned.
