I’ve been a game addict since my Mom bought the Lenovo Ideapad 510! It’s really cool, though I prefer a PC :(. The performance is not that bad though.
Nothing can beat PC power! I think these laptops are great for some games, but not all. Most gaming requirements cannot be supported with 100% absolute power by laptops.
I agree with you. I also enjoy freedom with PC, I can install anything I need to win any game!
My son is not happy with laptops! He wants a PC, says he could customize it to suit his needs. He is going crazy over Bit Coin mining and he is really determined to boost his PC’s performance to get that Bit coin! LOL
I think your son has a great sense of understanding what he really needs. His into something worthwhile and fun while other people his age are not doing. I think he’s growing up pretty fine 🙂
Dell Inspiron 5000 Series is a darling! I used this little guy to almost every game I played online. It’s reliable and does not run out of memory!
I’ve always been an Acer user. Though there have been new brands on the market today, I still prefer Acer over them. I just like how price and capacity are marketed by Acer 🙂
I’m not a fan of cheaper counterpart of the ones that I need. I think your post is very helpful though. 🙂
