  2. J W on May 9, 2021 at 3:38 am

    What screen are you using with the desktop, there?



  3. GeekDev on May 9, 2021 at 3:39 am

    what is the names of the asus laptops in the video



  4. Nafis Ahmed on May 9, 2021 at 3:40 am

    love your videos. small and informative.. can you review the "Asus ProArt Studiobook Pro X" ?? I do mainly video editing and sometimes gaming..



  5. J D on May 9, 2021 at 3:41 am

    So cyberpower pc can just give pcs away to youtubers but when you buy one and the gpu fails after 1.5 years you just left on your own. Makes sense.



  6. TheRealisticBeaver on May 9, 2021 at 3:45 am

    I need portability so I can run downstairs with my laptop in the middle of a ranked game so that my wifi dosent kill itself



  7. Ollie H on May 9, 2021 at 3:45 am

    Desktop will always be better just gatta put up with the prices



  8. saif jandal on May 9, 2021 at 3:47 am

    My friend got a pc with worst specs than a gaming laptop for the same price and his pc doesn’t even include a monitor



  9. Venus on May 9, 2021 at 3:47 am

    Get both. Problem solved.

    New problem: how to get new kidneys?



  10. Phil Hibbs on May 9, 2021 at 3:47 am

    I’m still using a 7½ year old gaming laptop, I don’t play the latest games but it runs GTA5 just fine. Looking to replace some time this year, but hard to find the combination of parts that I want. Specifically I like to have a ton of disk space and that’s rare nowadays.



  11. Y4n93r on May 9, 2021 at 3:49 am

    I would get a laptop because I travel ALOT thanks alot for this 🙂



  12. Johnny D on May 9, 2021 at 3:52 am

    The thing is if you’re able to build a pc, you’re able to replace the parts that fail over the years instead of spending 5-600 dollars on a motherboard and other parts, beside the gpu . Just use a low power graphic card that’s good enough to play games, until the prices of the gpu market lowers and gpus are more readily available.



  13. Andrew Jefferson on May 9, 2021 at 3:53 am

    Bought the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE about 2 months back and I absolutely love it, Understand that Desktops have more performance, but I have honestly yet to see a game that does not run extremely well on the Zephyrus. That and I take my laptop everywhere I go, love the portability, which honestly was my deciding factor.



  14. Virosaa on May 9, 2021 at 3:53 am

    gpu alone is more expensive than an high end laptop. Pc gaming is dead.



  15. Aleksander Andresen on May 9, 2021 at 3:54 am

    Me hears theres a pc giveaway: 😀
    Its UK only:😕



  16. Mr11ESSE111 on May 9, 2021 at 3:54 am

    we know which are cheaper now



  17. The Tech Chap on May 9, 2021 at 3:55 am

    Hey Chaps! Are you a Laptop or Desktop PC Gamer… and what are your specs??



  18. Alan Mc Mahon on May 9, 2021 at 3:56 am

    I have a house full of kids. Hardly every end up playing in the same room two nights in a row.

    Moving a DT is a pain.



  19. n on May 9, 2021 at 3:58 am

    I take the laptop. Portability is a big deal. Sure it would be nice to play in a 4k 144hz monitor but not as nice as being able to play anywhere in 1080p with a decent framerate, you are not losing that much



  20. ?????? on May 9, 2021 at 4:02 am

    I use a laptop instead of a desktop since they are more portable and they dont need building



  21. DRUKPA VIDEOS on May 9, 2021 at 4:04 am

    i don’t know why i am always watching video of laptop and PC



  22. Cashbag Gaming on May 9, 2021 at 4:04 am

    Could you make a comparison with a desktop pc and the rog flow x13?



  23. abhi k on May 9, 2021 at 4:04 am

    i think gaming laptops are better eventhough pc is best in specs … we can use powerful laptop from any place we can carry a beast with us anywhere we go .



  24. Osama Al-Azzawi on May 9, 2021 at 4:05 am

    A pc definitely



  25. nudle on May 9, 2021 at 4:07 am

    you look like tom hiddleston :3



  26. aaronluce15 on May 9, 2021 at 4:07 am

    what would you guys recommend for a gaming monitor with a gaming laptop? isnt display port better for resolution? i see most gaming laptops have hdmi only, and some have type-C. i am really looking for a decent gaming laptop right now.



  27. A F T on May 9, 2021 at 4:08 am

    *Neither. I prefer desklaps.*



  28. piggRUNNER on May 9, 2021 at 4:11 am

    one thing to keep in mind is that, unless im mistaken, neither of these laptops have a mux switch, so optimus is always on. this affects cpu performance quite a bit.



  29. ChuniNn on May 9, 2021 at 4:11 am

    I personally prefer gaming laptops because technology has advanced quite a lot and today’s ones can give you the same performance as a PC. The battery doesn’t break down like on old laptops if you use it to charge and you can take advantage of its maximum power, plus you can attach a monitor to it and you will have an even better experience. I am happy with my laptop (An Asus ROG Strix G17, 1660ti Intel I7 10th 16GB ram and 512gb ssd) I also attached a 244hz monitor and I have pretty good fps on most games with high graphics .



  30. MILI on May 9, 2021 at 4:11 am

    Laptop Pros: Portability
    Desktop Pros: Everything else



  31. Danilo Novaković on May 9, 2021 at 4:12 am

    2021 in nutshell:

    Desktop: Unavailable
    Laptop: Maybe available



  32. Foud Rabochi on May 9, 2021 at 4:14 am

    I always preferred laptops



  33. Kevin Carroll on May 9, 2021 at 4:17 am

    Gaming pc



  34. Nova Blast on May 9, 2021 at 4:18 am

    I saw the prices of pc parts rise up exponentially



  35. Mario Del Rio on May 9, 2021 at 4:19 am

    The think I wanna know is how to hold the mouse and use the keyboard correctly so niether get tires



  36. Christopher Hammock on May 9, 2021 at 4:21 am

    Laptop for me (using a 1650 Acer Nitro 5) and a 2020 MacBook Air.



  37. Corey Johnson on May 9, 2021 at 4:23 am

    I would have to say for me, I am going with the Razerblade pro 17 with 4k 120hz rtx 3080. The performance is incredible along with the cooling. Check out warners review on it. I travel alot so i wouldnt get much use out of a full blown desktop. I primarily play on ps5, series x and switch but the ability to have game pass on the go and emulators while on the go is amazing. I can turn down some of the settings if needed for 4k or run 1440p or 1080 if i really needed but the 3080 in this build handles 4k 60 on high and ultra pretty well. Another this is I dont play competitive shooters or a lot of esports titles and when i need to ill just drop the in game resolution and it works like a champ. 120hz is more than enough for my use case. Plus when at home I will have a secondary monitor the lg gp950-b which will be amazing for my consoles and latptop. No doubt desktops are amazing and perform better but i def dont need more than 60-150fps in most games so all that extra power to me while available wouldnt be much use for me.



  38. Diogo maia on May 9, 2021 at 4:23 am

    What is the game he is playing besides call of duty?



  39. Juan Diego on May 9, 2021 at 4:27 am

    Funny enough, I was researching last night about an equal PC to my laptop (MSI GF75 Thin 9SC), because I wanted upgradeability and reliability. However, last night I wanted to watch a movie while gaming and… I just brought my laptop with me, I couldn’t do that with a PC lol so I’m sticking to my laptop for 4 years. I could then sell it or recycle it



  40. craigr98 on May 9, 2021 at 4:28 am

    So would £1,000 get me a decent gaming pc?



  41. Tyler Johnson on May 9, 2021 at 4:28 am

    Here is something to consider

    Laptops don’t come close to desktops at really high resolutions like 344×1440, and 4k, but at 1080p, the differences aren’t as large as you would think, since many GPU’s are now pretty overkill for this resolution. That being said, it is still possible to hit 60 fps on a 4k tv or external ultrawide, with something like say a Zephyrus G15, without playing the game at low settings (unless the game where talking about is RDR 2 or CyberPunk).

    If you are willing to drop the game to high instead of ultra, you will suprised at how much better your performance will be, for a barely noticeable visual difference. Ultra settings are very unoptimized, and you get very minimal gains, over high, or even medium in some cases, in exchange for sometimes half of your framerate. Also, even if your monitor is 1440p or 1080p, the same as your laptops screen, you can still get gains by bypassing Optimus. A cooling pad also helps with thermals, although cooling in laptops has definitely improved.

    When you buy a laptop, you just have to accept that you are giving up some performance, for mobility, but that doesn’t mean the performance from laptops is terrible. 180 fps from a desktop 3080 is great, but 140 fps from a 3080m, is still nothing to scoff at.

    I hope this helps someone make their decision on what they want to go with.



  42. Speykious on May 9, 2021 at 4:28 am

    I’m kinda in the middle of the very spot in my life where I’ll have to travel a lot, between my house, my university, my internship and future jobs and places to go. So I would prefer the more portable way to go, which is a gaming laptop, where I can do everything from programming to video editing to gaming with high enough quality to not feel behind the current tech available.

    Which I kinda feel right now with my 6GB of RAM + 1TB HDD + Intel i5 + Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M + 1600×900 screen.
    No SSD, not even 8GB of RAM, not even an i7 for what I’m doing, not even a Ti GPU and not even a Full HD screen. 🙁



  43. Brad Beyers on May 9, 2021 at 4:30 am

    Buy a gaming laptop then start piecing together a desktop build for your stationary at home gaming rig. It’s what I did it took me awhile to build the desktop I’m not rich but it was definitely worth it. Took me 3 months to find a desktop gpu and I wasn’t able to get one of the new rtx cards either. Meh gaming with G-sync on a 24inch 144hz panel though you really can”t beat it. And if you can sneak in CSGO or call of duty at work like I can then the gaming laptop is great for work and on the go gaming.



  44. שמעון בן עייש on May 9, 2021 at 4:30 am

    This is no longer true today you can buy a laptop with 3060-3070 and it will cost you less than a desktop with 1660 when you add the screen and keyboard to it and the laptop will get you the same performance



  45. Diiphylleia on May 9, 2021 at 4:34 am

    I just started watching and I really hope that I find an answer because I am sooo confused!



  46. Samat . on May 9, 2021 at 4:34 am

    Hello dear children, this video has aroused great interest. I dream of buying a computer for my poor son My poor son dreams of computer management but because we live in poverty, his dream does not come true I would be happy if someone could make my poor 13-year-old son’s dream come true. The computers cost only five hundred dollars I wish you all a long and happy life



  47. Badvoc on May 9, 2021 at 4:34 am

    What about a laptop connected to an eGPU? Mobility and power combined (external monitor test only to be fair to the desktop). When I’ve had a desktop I’ve also had a laptop for mobility, but it’s two devices. Laptop with eGPU bridges the gap some what.



  48. HopeKiller on May 9, 2021 at 4:35 am

    Gaming Laptops?! Aw, HELL NO! Not once, but twice…. they failed me!
    The performance is terrible.
    I had an Asus ROG with an RTX 2070, I9 9880H, 32GB of RAM running in Dual Channel. It cost 2750 dollars.
    I also had an MSI GE75 Raider with an RTX 2080, i7 8750H, 16GB or RAM running in Dual Channel. It cost around 2550 dollars.
    Both of those were performing very poorly from the beginning.
    I was struggling to get 70 FPS on LOW settings in OW…. and I was experiencing drops quite often (the Laptop was plugged in)
    Single player games like Vampyr or Resident Evil Remake were running at around 45+ FPS no matter the settings.
    Gaming Laptops are a huge gamble. If you see EVEN ONE negative review on its Store page, don’t bother buying that Laptop.



  49. ScopezAG on May 9, 2021 at 4:35 am

    I only choose laptop because of how much of a responsibility a desktop is and its more expensive



  50. Fortnite x Warzone on May 9, 2021 at 4:35 am

    laptop
