    For the most part all the brands use the same equipment, and are running the same operating system.

    Most laptops have very weak video cards for playing current games (3D shooters for example). So it sounds like you’d be looking for a ‘gaming laptop’

    Asus & Alienware (now owned by Dell) put out a lot of laptops targeted for people who want to play games on a laptop. Keep in mind you’re going to pay 50% to 100% more on a laptop then you would a similarly equipped gaming desktop system, and you won’t be able to upgrade much of anything.

    So if you’re not moving it around every day, stick with a desktop.
