Reminder that there’s no logical reason to build a PC for gayming nowadays

- PCs are expensive both upfront and in the long run since you have to upgrade their core components every 2 years. Consoles like the Ps5 are like 1/4 of the price of a low end pc but have as much functionality if not more. High end pcs can also have compatibility issues with older games

- Pcs are a fucking hassle to connect to a TV. With consoles you can just plug in and play, making the overall gaming experience much better

- Consoles are the definition of convenience. No hassles with hardware, annoying windows updates or driver issues. No manual labour involved until it breaks and needs replacing. If your main use case is to gayme, a console provides a much much better experience. Yes, you can do more than just gayme on a pc but I already have my laptop and smartphone for other computing tasks.

- On PC, Since you’re forced to use windows if you wanna game, you’re making yourself vulnerable to CIA spyware see: Telemetry. The Ps5 is made in Japan so you don’t have to worry about amerikkkan glowies tracking you.

- Consoles have a larger library of games including exclusives

By now we can safely say this killed the Windows laptop. "Gamers", copers. and shills will still use them, but everyone else who has given Apple Silicon a chance knows that not a single Windows laptop can even come close.
