I have had friends who bring over full computers and set them up in my house and take up so much room and cause issues with plugs etc. I find it easier to have a ok computer that i can bring anywhere and have access to my games at almost anytime i want to play not just at home.

Currently using an outdated Gameing laptop and i am still happy with it. It is 3.5 years old and has severe heating issues but i can play league of legends well.
youve never been to a lan party, and you must be ballin on that hotel wifi!

Sorry, forgot to say that my job is 25-30% travel. I travel 1000miles and stay at those locations for extended periods. It is not conductive for me to have a full desktop with me. Again going over friends houses make it great too. Better to hang out with friends and play a game, than to play a game with friends.

Niether have I, I mostly only do Single Player games, LoL and WoW are the only MMO's I play. I only have one or two friends whom I do co op with.

Loner powers, for the win.

All you people have friends, I'm jealous.

Yea it does, I still have to open ram slots though. If I was into it (which farcry 1 was badass) then I'd spend 50 bucks to upgrade to 8 gigs
