    So I've been doing a lot of research but I still can't come to a decision. I have been trying to figure out what I should get. Either the razer blade stealth (kaby lake), the ROG strix asus gaming laptop, or I build my own PC. I need your help!

    Since you are looking at laptops, I don't know if there is a easy way to build a laptop. If you know how, Build it. Building a PC is always cheaper.
    Are you looking to hook a laptop up to a monitor and leave it? Build a Gaming PC.

    Well, it's mainly up to what you're going to be doing with it.

    Definitely want portability? Don't go desktop.
    Really don't care about portability and want something that is easily upgradeable? Go desktop.
    It'd be best to know why you want a computer to help narrow down your choices.

    Don't forget, you can get desktop-grade graphics using the Blade Stealth + Core combo.

    I do video editing, photoshop and gaming. I want to build a computer because it has a lot better value. Another reason is that if a part breaks it is a lot easier to fix. Another thing is that I already have a macbook air so I'm kind of leaning towards a PC but I'm still not sure.

    Trust me when I say that you don't need a laptop. I got an HP one a few years ago, and went obsolete fast. Also, you can't beat the power of a good PC. I'd build your own if you can, or go to another place that can build it for you. PC master race :big_grin_:

    Thanks for the feedback :D. I'm starting to lean in the pc section now. I own a macbook air and I have a pc but it seriously old. So old that it has an intel core pentium, the old one. Thanks for the feedback :D

    If you don't need the portability then building your own desktop is a no-brainer. It'll be cheaper and more powerful. If you want gaming power out of a RBS you would need to pair it with the razer core.

    Building your own desktop always gonna give you the best value for your hard earned money.
    Unless you move around a lot, really dont have time to sit down, and your job requirement is working on the go then maybe consider of the Razer Blade Stealth + Razer Core combo, or go all the way to the Razer Blade 1060/Razer Blade Pro.

    Either the blade stealth or building your own PC.
    But that's 2 very different choices, it depends on what you prefer, heavy gaming, or portable solution ?
    BTW : Ask yourself this question, how much you wanna spend for it, it may impact your choice (if 2500€, then blade stealth + core + good ssd + good GTX or AMD), if 1500€, then build your own :)

    Yeah lol. They are two very different choices. I have a budget of around $1,400 USD. for the actual laptop or pc. I'll probably go with the pc now that I look at it in perspective. Better value, if it breaks, you can fix it, and I already have a macbook air (2015 update model). So yeah! Thanks for the feedback bro :D

    What a great time to be building a PC @AwkwardBlue, don't forget to make full use of all the online discounts for those parts! Would love to see the finished product once you're done with it :)

    Use the Black friday deals quickly. A pc build has much more power for the samen value, at the cost of mobility. If you don't have to work on the go taken a pc.

    Yeah so go for a home made PC ;)

    Yeah! Do you know where I'd be able to find those discounts, lol. I'm pretty bad at this. It's my first pc. And I will upload pictures of it. I have an image in my head of what I want it to look like. It will be following a color theme of black and white. Not very original but hey, why fix what's not broken if you get what I'm saying ;).

    If you're living in the US, I've heard that Newegg and Amazon have some great discounts! pcpartpicker is a great place to start too when looking for builds.

    I'm sure our expert residents on Insider can offer up some more great advice on this.
