The desktop will trample the laptop in games. Processing wise... ehhhh... off the top of my head they should be close to each other, depending on what the task is.

The desktop is going to win this battle, but for $1200, you can build so much of a better desktop than that one listed.

The AMD desktop is CPU limited vs. the laptop which will outrun it in bechmarks.

The desktops video card makes it a better gaming system, but combining the same video card with an intel CPU would give you a much better gaming rig. The AMD FX-8120 is just not that good a gaming CPU. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o... FX-8120 games comparable/lower gaming performance than Core i3-2100T, i3-2120T
