I already have the PS4. But I really want to play the next Halo and Gears of War on the Xbox One alongside the good PC titles which run the best on PC. For multiplats, I will get PC. For exclusives, I can get them on PS4 and Xbox One. And I am not really big on graphics so a really powerful desktop has less appeal to me than a gaming laptop. I think with a dedicated graphics memory of 8GB on the 880M, it should play 1080p on high to ultra no problem for most games. What do you think?

Get a really good Desktop, cuz then it will be easier to upgrade things. Gaming Laptops are overly expensive, but then again are portable. If it was for me to decide id get a good desktop.

I am still deciding...but this one is definitely a good deal. I can also get an Xbox One with this build. I can probably find something similar in NCIX or Canada Computers.
