    Depends on your use of a computer.
    I have my computer at home which hulk smashes even the G750JH but I bought a G750JH for when i'm not at home but still want to have a powerful gaming system to use. Its not as powerful as my home system but its the best option for mobile gaming. You can always build a more powerful desktop cheaper then its comparable laptop but you cant close the lid on a desktop and take it out the door with you like a laptop.

    what do you mean with "best"?
    FPS? In that case the desktop GTX760 is twice as powerful as the 770M and over 15% faster than the 780M so obviously it's in a completely different league.
    If you want raw power and upgradeability, it's really a no brainer. But if you want to carry your gaming around the house or to a friend, get the laptop...oh, and it hurts your electricity bill less.

    For you, I think the best option would be a desktop, since you dont like the looks of the G750, I think you'd be happier with a standard dekstop.
    Why buy something you dont like, even before you bought it..

    Desktop if you only game at home at your desk

    Laptop if you want to bring gaming elseware (with a smaller screen ofc, unless you wanna help me find way to have 3x 17.3" screens on laptop)

    OP, Please do not buy anything from Asus as well. Just having less bull in forums would be awesome.

    @RGTI9 - Really?...REALLY???

    Don't buy the G750. It doesn't want you. I think it thinks you're ugly too.

    A desktop with those specifications is all you need to get online and ogle at older G75s.

    Cheers!

    I would recommend a desktop, since it is easier to customize the appearance of a custom-built desktop than a laptop (your choice of cases). Also, a laptop is limited in its upgradeability, which further adds to the cost. Oh, and a desktop can run things such as Folding@Home better (much better cooling and components for 24/7 folding).
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!
