So,latelly I realized that I would like to own a laptop instead of a desktop PC and I was looking at some Alienware ones on used items websites.

And I found this guy that is willing to trade his Alienware laptop for my PC.
The question is: Is this a good trade?
The guy seems legit,more to that he will leave me the laptop a whole day to test it and do whatever I want with it just to see it works flawlessly.

THIS IS THE TRADE:
THIS IS MY DESKTOP PC THAT I WANT TO TRADE FOR THAT LAPTOP:

460m is pretty weak. I have a Sager custom notebook with a 580M and it struggles to play alot of modern titles at 1080. Laptop gaming has a lot of drawbacks (heat issues, poor performance compared to desktops, not very portable because they are bulky, very loud).

I don't know how the 6850 stacks up to the 460M but I would bet that your PC will outperform the Alienware
