Now that there have been 3 beta events, I am hoping that people have gathered enough impressons to help me out. Basically, I am in need of a new computer, mainly for GW2, D3, TL2 and whatever enticing ARPGs come out in the next few years; and work (some Photoshop and other non-intensive tasks). I am debating between:
15.6 inch 1080p screen
Radeon HD 7850
8 GB RAM
24 inch 1080p monitor
Price is about the same. I know mostly desktops > laptops but I would be able to lie down in bed/couch/chair on the patio/etc with the laptop and also take it with me on vacations (which is not very often but still) whereas the desktop will be stuck. I guess my question is is that desktop going to be noticeably better than the laptop so it's worth it to sacrifice mobility.
