My gaming laptop beats all consoles hands down, end of !

What laptop have you got i keep wondering whether to add my laptop fund and console fund together to get either an Alienware M14x or 17x both going cheap because of the new models that have just been released both come in at under 1k, although thats a lot when i could build or buy a desktop with similar grunt.

Put it this way it wasn't cheap but it's very good.

In fairness, my £300 desktop I made for my parents use beats consoles with ease >_>

Beauty of PC gaming is there's always room to up the specs when new graphics cards come available.
Can't do that with a console.

I was thinking about a laptop, but you can't really upgrade them, so I've opted to a desktop. Can't afford one yet though, need to save up quite a bit yet til I decide to buy one

I have pulled the trigger early and blown most of my budget on a Samsung Note 8.0, im going to wait and see if any limited editions come out in the weeks after launch like a Forza edition etc.

Just thought I'd give you an update. It looks like Microsoft have turned around on their decisions.

They must have decided to do a u -turn because otherwise it would have cost them sales/ money

Excellent, just shows what a bit of healthy competition can do combined with people power.

PS4 is still the one I'll be going for at launch, more powerful, less expensive and launch exclusives are more interesting for me - can't say any of the xb1 launch exclusives really do it for me.

Now MS has dropped the draconian DRM I'll probably pick up a halo xb1 bundle next yr or something.

after being a big fan of the 360 when it came out and having 3 die on me i decided to go to the ps3 but then after a while i noticed games on the ps3 seem to be single player (no -co-op) and online only.

decided to go back to the 360 once they sorted the overheat issue and the game span seemed a lot bigger majoirty of games were at least 2 player and co-op both offline and online.

 

As soon as i heard about the xbox one being 24 online only i thought that sucked!!! and what sucked even more is the pre owned game situation!!! looks like ps4 for me but now they have revolked this i might be sticking to xbox, thye juts need to bring the price down now.

The more power debate is always a hollow one on consoles, the Xbox will always have the slight advantage as games developed for the PC will port to the Xbox better than anything else, the only 'power' advantage that the PS4 has is in the RAM used and so i don't think will come in to play, i reckon that Microsoft offers the best overall package in respect to online services, multimedia services and customer service in my past experience.

Microsoft dont give a crap about their customers my complaints about the 3 Xbox 360's I had that went kaput after just a month fell on deaf ears. They've recently forced me to upgrade my perfectly good hotmail app on my android phone to the outlook app and its basically rendered it useless. I can now only get push emails if im connected to WiFi which defeats the purpose of having it as a mobile app and me and millions more people are complaining 3 months on still no fix. It was the same with Windows 8. Microsoft dont give a crap once they have your money and I hate the way they use their financial muscle strangle hold any competition. All I can say is ill never go back to Microsoft.

I always got a freebie from them when sending mine back i got Forza 2 for free back in the day as well as Halo 3, plus they also chuck in a month of Xbox live to compensate for the loss of the month due to repair or what ever, and i have never been too keen on the Hotmail apps, what phone are you using?

I got nothing off them at all. Not even an appology I had to fight to get my money back they just wanted to keep replacing it by which time I'd had enough. Ive got the Sony xperia z the hotmail app was brilliant for me especially in regards to the forum. I used to get any post notifications instantly now im lucky if I get a notification even if im connected through WiFi and its not just my phone its the full android set up just about. At first you couldnt even log into the app it just kept crashing and going back to the log in screen. As far as im concerned tactics like using financial muscle to get all the New map packs a month early on COD for example to put people off PlayStation are just dirty tricks. It actually put me off COD altogether for selling out to them. Im kinda glad in a way cause that in turn led me to battlefield which is just in a complete different league gameplay/graphics wise
