Nononononono... The desktop is 10x more powerful then the laptop. The GTX 780m 4gb is a lot less powerful then the GTX 780. The m on the end stands for mobile, meaning that it is a gpu designed for a laptop. Also, the cpu has an mq at the end, this means it has been specially designed for laptops and that the cpu has 4 cores, the 3770k has more power then the i7 4700mq. The only reason you would choose a laptop over a laptop is if your situation requires it. For example I am at boarding school and I need a laptop for classes and for dorm gaming.
