I spent $1,200 on my laptop (well my parents did). I can play games on it!
*tries to play NFS 2012*
*computer plays it at about 15fps*
"F*** this, I'm getting a One."
Just my opinion about PC's. A good one over here is 4x more expensive than a console.
You can get an excellent gaming laptop for $1200- and a PC that will max everything.
You just need to do research ! ! !
That's probably why you ended up getting a sucky laptop; most people have no idea how to buy a gaming computer. Next time, do your homework.
