What do you mean workstation of gaming?
Oops workstation or
I had a custom built laptop before and the support and build was very unreliable and i lost a lot of work so wanted to go with a brand name.
I use custom built laptops for precisely that reason.....my son worked in laptop support for a major laptop vendor right outta high school to support himself while away at college. While he had build a dozen or so desktops by then, the rest of the kids in his training class were novices.... the course was 2 days. he was promoted to 1st tier support after 2 weeks. I generally like the technician to have more knowledge and ability than I do and prefer that the guy who consulted with me on component selection be the same guy who I call for TS.
