Hey guys, I want to either buy a laptop or desktop for gaming. I am looking to spend around 750 dollars, 800 at most. Would I get a better laptop or Desktop for gaming? and if you can please give me some options with links to laptops and desktops you suggest.
I basically want to get the best system I can get for gaming no matter if it's a desktop or a laptop. Also, the only thing I will be using the computer for will be College things, Music, Youtube, Facebook, and Runescape(the game). If there is a computer a lot less in price that can run Runescape on max graphics then PLEASE suggest that.

If that's the only game your gonna play then most laptop/desktop will run it easily. For this i would be recommending a laptop since this game isn't demanding and also it's nice to carry around a laptop for College.

Do you think that laptop will be able to run the game at max settings smoothly?

It should be able to but i am pretty sure Runscape is only a webbased game.
