    I'm a sellout

    Tired of the desktop rat race and the giant box in my office. I've built several PCs since I built my first in the 90s. I've gone to laptop/external display setup.

    I picked up the ASUS G15 AMD Advantage and paired it with a 27" QHD panel. I also got a 60% wireless RGB keyboard and wireless mouse with a nice bluetooth headset. This setup works great. I have my laptop when I go to the inlaws and need to escape into Wasteland 3 or Battletech, and then at home I just plug my dock into it and I have a full desktop setup. The best of both worlds. Plus I can stream my Xbox Series X to the monitor and just play that way too.

    So TLDR I sold out and ditched desktop gaming for a laptop....also see ya'll next year as I forgot about Sharky until I got the birthday email. Hope everyone is well.

    That isn't selling out, that's being practical! I have two excellent rigs, yet I'd gotten myself a Lenovo Legion 5 Pro (AMD R7 5800H, 2x8GB DDR4 3200, RTX 3070 140W, 2560x1600), pretty beefy for a laptop, but I wanted to be able to game. It handles DSR pretty well too, not exactly blazing fast but but playable framerate for a good gaming experience. Oh yeah, I'd gotten a Keychron K2 w/l KB and an Asus TUF Gaming M4 w/l mouse for gaming as I hate the feel of membrane KBs.

    Good luck with your laptop, and keep on gaming dude!
