Stupid question but I've seen multiple laptops with similar specs for around the same price.

Besides temperature and cooling, why would someone get a similiar price/spec desktop versus a laptop?

Good price, If they added a small SSD and 8gb more ram they would have increased the price. my guess... $700 if they added the ssd and more ram. but they dont mention the ram speed.

good PC for someone just getting into PC gaming but you'll want to add an SSD

Desktop is faster than laptop even if it has same specs. https://amp.businessinsider.com/l...ops-2018-8

personally, i have been using a laptop connected to a monitor for over a year now and i would much prefer to have a desktop.

most gaming laptops barely last a few hours on battery even if you're not doing intensive work on there. there are more ports on desktops compared to laptops and you're keeping it plugged in. additionally, some gaming laptops have integrated gpus as well as a dedicated one which can cause some inconveniences with display connectivity. some people prefer desktops for the aesthetics as well as the space conservation (laptops can be very wide and take up space on your desk)

this is just my view on gaming desktops vs laptops, hope this helps

Unless you need portability, then go with a laptop.

Otherwise...

One spill of a drink, and you've ruined most laptops. On a desktop, $10 for a keyboard gets you going again.

One good whack to the screen, and your laptop display is toast. If the same happens on a desktop, $75 will get you another monitor...not to mention the endless choices of sizes if you so desire.

Laptops emit more radiation than desktops primary because you usually have them closer to your body ( and because of WIFI).

Specially the keyboard you type on which is sitting directly above the motherboard ( when using a laptop)

Personally i think desktops are more convenient as its easier to change parts and have access to them. They also have better cooling and are generally a bit faster.
I have a laptop but i usually find myself using it in a grounded position as i never like using it on my lap or laying down.

There is an HP model similar in specs ( HP Pavilion 590-p0066 ) like this desktop but it looks more office like and doesn't have a video card.

I was trying to see the motherboard and power supply connections on this acer desktop because some of the HP models have proprietary cables which is really frustrating , specially with their power supplies
