Gamers have always been around, since the very first arcade game has been invented. There’s something about computer games and video games that attract many people around the world, and it even has a way of brining people from around the world together. Today, we’re here to talk about gaming laptops – for those of you who are into gaming, but not sure what’s the right way to go about it. There are many advantages to purchasing a gaming laptop, including playing some of your favorite games at any given time, anywhere. For upcoming PC gamers it may seem like an easy, quick way of getting into the scene. However, we’re here to tell you some of the reasons why you shouldn’t buy a gaming laptop.
The Technology Is Advancing Too Fast
Gaming components inside PCs is accelerating extremely fast. So fast that many PC parts become outperformed by better hardware not but a year later. As you can imagine, this is incredibly destructive to the gaming laptop market. By the time a laptop is released, much like gaming consoles, many of its components are already being surpassed by better hardware out there on the market. Now, that is not to say the laptop can’t run the latest triple A titles, but for the gaming enthusiast who strives to max out settings and features, they might find this obstacle quite crippling.
Beware of Heating Issues
Any avid gamer would tell you, gaming laptops are notorious for over-heating. PC gaming is very demanding for all computers. This causes PCs to get exceedingly hot while running games. With desktops, many builds are capable of having well ventilation and cooling technology such as liquid coolers. Unfortunately for laptops, they are very limited in how they eliminate this heat. Sure, fans help, but the way laptops are designed, many can’t get rid of the heat fast enough. This results in many technical problems, as you can imagine. Melted segments in motherboards, CPUs burning out and more are just the beginning when it comes to gaming laptops and the problems that arise when they work hrd and get too hot.
Let’s face it, most gaming laptops are horrendously overpriced for the hardware you are getting inside. Most of the time you can build your own PC with the same components for half the price. But I guess you’re paying for the convenience of being able to play your favorite PC games on the go.
At the end of the day, the only reason a PC gamer should be buying a gaming laptop is if he (or she) is constantly on the go and wants to take his or her gaming lifestyle with them. Other than that, we couldn’t recommend enough that you just build your own.
