Please see below PC specs. I am moving to a new house and I was wondering what I should do. The wife wants me to get a laptop but I like the PC I built too. The Mac may look neater to have in our home whereas the PC would be alot powerful and fun for those days when I feel like gaming (although rarely have time for it).

What should I do? BTW, I use a PC and have an iPad 3 and a MacBook Air 13' from work for work purposes

Keep the fully functional desktop, and buy a cheap laptop or tablet for mobile browsing if you don't have one already. You'll never have as much fun with the macbook as you would with the gaming-rig.

Yeah I'd suggest keeping the desktop. Just keep your desk area clean and neat in your new house and the desktop shouldn't look too bad! And like someone said, it'll be a lot more powerful. You already have a laptop for work anyway.

good point

So you are done with PCs? not even custom built ones?

Funny you ask this on a forum FULL of people with high end gaming desktop pc's. What do you expect the responses to be?

You are wasting your money to buy a new computer at this point... in my opinion.

If you want it, buy it and enjoy but it sounds redundant to buy a laptop to replace a decent desktop when you already have an iPad. I guess if space is really at a premium... darn wife acceptance factor...
