-Dont ever buy laptops for gaming. Its never worth it. They will always overheat and be too expensive
-If your budget for a pc is the same for your console. Then go with the console... PC has a higher upfront cost,but cheaper games/no pay for online etc. If your budget for a pc is like 500 or 600.. Go console... I would say $1000 is the sweet spot for a very good gaming pc
-games...... nuff said. go for whatever platform has the majority of games you want to play. Dont look at it in the short term.. Its obvious Xbox one has the better launch line up over the Ps4, But Xbone is going to be terrible in all multiplats and only get worst and worst as the years go by. And in my opinion most of the top scoring games are multiplats.
