Graphic designs: Six speedy 17-inch gaming laptops

Jim 59

The other thing gaming laptops are good for - apart from gaming - is just to be a desktop PC replacement. Smaller laptops, "notebooks" and the like, apart from lacking power, don't have the hardware and ports needed for general computing life. Eg DVD, USB, ethernet, VGA (for multiple monitors or overhead projectors), SD reader and so on.

Yes, you might argue DVD or whatever isn't needed, but life is simpler if you have it.
