"Future" Laptop... or Desktop who should I buy?

Hi guys, first post here, but I have reading a looot o reviews, and here I am... I don't know which laptop to buy...
I was thinking for choosing a desktop, but, my friend says that he has just bought a laptop and he is playing bf3 in ultra settings, my house... well.. I can say it's big and I sometimes travel, my mom already have a laptop but is 2 years old and when she bought it wasn't the best it was intermediary so I can't play any games there...
Tell me another thing guys, Laptop or Desktop? And Why of them.
Going back to the question... If I buy a laptop, which one is a good value for gaming like bf3 and in the future can handle crysis 3 and "bf4" Not too much expensive, please.

Thanks guys!

Budgets around $2000, laptop 17" or more

  1. The Lenovo Y580 15.6-Inch laptop is an all around great gaming laptop boasting a 15.6inch HD screen, a massive amount of system memory installed and a highly capable NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M graphics card with 2GB of dedicated video memory.

    This is one the best choices as a gaming laptop having an unparalleled price to performance ratio and integrating a lot of useful features which span beyond a gaming ready portable machine. It runs on an Intel Core i7-3630QM which is accompanied by 6GB of RAM and a 750 GB hard drive for storage. http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Y580-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Dawn/dp/B009AEPQDI%3FSubscriptionId%3D19BAZMZQFZJ6G2QYGCG2%26tag%3Dsquid1165943-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB009AEPQDI

    Why a desktop? And thanks for the configs, my budget is around $1800 - $2000, can upgrade this... like i5 3570k, and a quick question, 3770k do not have a significant change comparing with 3570k in gaming?

    Better performance for cheaper and yes that's correct.

    So you'r saying that I should buy a desktop?... can you help me choose the parts of desktop?
  6. A desktop will not have to worry about the #1 problem for gaming laptops, overheating.

    Plus, a $1000 desktop will outperform a $2000 laptop by a significant margin as well.

    The one problem is that you lose portability, but I bought my laptop for gaming as well because I was on the move now and then, However I realized that I often don't have time to do gaming on the go until I'm back home at my desktop anyways!

    You can cut away another $160 from that price tag, if you already have a copy of windows, keyboard and mouse.

    However, if you are not nearby a Microcenter (in store pickup only) You will have to add about $80 to the price tag.
