if you are some noob who plays single player games or just plays games for fun and doesn't care about being good or getting into the competitive side of it then you can be content with your laptop. laptops only really suck when you are considering hardcore/competitive First Person Shooter gaming multiplayer.
the main reason is Frames, which means so much in serious gaming, (edit: i mean SERIOUS gaming, you will know if you are one of these or not so don't assume), Frames Per Second on a laptop is crap b/c you usually play at high resolution with a shitty graphics card and shitty cpu (usually shitty gfx/cpu, almost always super high res), (edit: 30 fps is CRAP to play competitively with. and don't tell me you get 80 fps cause we all know you are staring at a wall or staring at some scenery with none or limited action happening).
laptops will always be behind desktops as far as power for framerate in games go. and this doesn't touch the topic of ghosting for super high movement games.
