Desktop is always better for gaming, both re the performance you get for a set price, and also general performance—laptops have limitations in terms of space, weight and heat.

That said, plenty of people game happily on laptops—but you'll need to spend extra if you want to play recent games.

A gaming desktop is still the most powerful, upgradeable, and, in some ways, affordable way to play games on a PC.
If you’re looking to save space or take your computer with you, a gaming laptop makes far more sense.

Yes they can be. My friend has only just bought a 15 inch gaming laptop for around the 2k mark.

I am not sure how it compares to a desktop at this price but it looks really good when they games are running.

Depends on your requirements. If you are a hardcore gamer then go for desktops. Otherwise if you are a moderate gamer like me, go for gaming laptops under $1500-$2000. I have the Acer Predator 15 inch gaming laptop, works like a charm.

If you don’t want to break the bank by paying for a gaming laptop, then a budget machine, like Acer’s Nitro 5, could be for you. It won’t run the very latest games at the best frame rates, but will be more than capable for decent 1080p gaming. But if you want a real monster of a gaming laptop that’ll easily chew through the most demanding games, then a laptop like the MSI GT75VR Titan is worth checking out, but do be prepared to pay quite a bit for a high-end laptop.

Not every laptop is good for gaming. Lot of them a great, but it depends what you need. I have had ASUS, MSI, Lenovo... i would say that those ones I had, MSI was like a rocket, noise of cooling was terrible... performance was great, but noise not so much... temperatures too. ASUS was way better, great performance, noise and termperatures... and now I have a the Lenovo Y540 with RTX2060 and there is a huge difference in my opinion... cooling noise is normal, regular work = too quiet... gaming is not that noisi, temperatures are normal, like max 75-85 degrees with havy gaming...

Not everybody has time and resources to build a gaming PC from scratch, so it is better to buy a gaming laptop
If you need your machine to be mobile, then yes. Otherwise, buy a desktop—you will always get better performance for the same money, or the same performance for less money. Laptops have to compromise on performance because of space and heat constraints.
