What's it like gaming on a laptop?

  1. I have never had a laptop in my home. Phone and tablet seemed to do the trick for what I need when away from desk PC but I feel I am missing something... How in the heck does everyone use their laptop for gaming without a razer keyboard and mouse. Do you like a smaller screen than a PC monitor? I have a 27 inch monitor currently. Do you use the laptop or plug in the mouse and keyboard periperhals? I feel like I need a razer laptop to make me more mobile gaming wise but really would like to hear your thoughts on what you are using for your gaming experience.

    oh let me say ONLY MY PC will allow me to game like I would like. Everything else is okay by phone or tablet. FB, internet, blah

    I've always only played simple games like MapleStory, and a few fps games here and there. Nothing in need of some pretty decent specs to play. I enjoyed being on the go with gaming too so a Laptop was good for me.
    Before I go more in depth, My laptop specs are listed in my signature, and it's a 17.3" inch screen laptop.
    I started playing CSGO about 2.5 years ago, and I was gaming directly on the laptop's keyboard. I have a total of 3 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 port. I only needed to have my Razer Imperator mouse and Razer Kraken plugged in to play CSGO. And about 5 months ago, I started playing Overwatch, same thing. I only needed a mouse and headset connected and I'll be gaming away. Sadly with my laptop's specs, I'm stuck with playing Overwatch and CSGO at lowest possible settings while being Full Screened. I can only achieve so much with low specs stopping me from reaching my true potential gaming. But I'm happy to see what I'm capable of right now. I do plan on upgrading to build myself a gaming desktop, or if by chance I did win the 2nd Fortnight for the "Boost ahead with Razer Cortex" contest, I'd be able to strive to get so much better.

    I've only used my laptop for gaming when I was abroad studying and I didn't have my PC with me. I played games like Smite and Payday 2 and it wasn't that bad, (ignoring the fact that after a few hours the keys in my laptop would start burning so much it hurt lol), but I've always preferred to play in mi Gaming PC with my Razer gear and a 32-inch monitor. I would buy a Razer Valerie though xDD

    Now that my laptop is dying day by day, I'm considering to get a Razer Blade in the near future (;

    Yeah I've thought about it too. I'll probably get one when I go abroad again ^^

    I'm most likely going to buy a Razer Blade, just looked at "The New Razer Blade" and the "Razer Blade V5" but I honestly can't tell which one I should get. Also I'd like to start saving up to build myself a gaming desktop soon too ;o
