Sort of. Recently picked up a gaming laptop as my girlfriend needed a new one for work as her mac wasn't compatible with some programs. Decided to spend the extra cash and get a semi decent gaming laptop. I have a couple questions though as I'm primarily a console gamer, it's usually easier.

When is the steam winter sale? All I hear about is how awesome steam is, so I'm excited to spend more money.

What are a couple good PC exclusive games? I'm into every type of game minus RTS pretty much.

That's pretty much it unless you guys can throw some advice towards someone who is really new to this thing. If it matters,
GTX GeForce 1060
7th Gen i5
DDR4 16 GB RAM
Dedicated SSD along with a standard HDD

Thanks in advance

Wasn't me lol. TC was going on about his DD girl who left him. Someone posted an "I'm sorry dudes" comment, which comes Frome slime something or other. Big troll on the ps4 boards. Then I jumped in with an "I'm sorry dudes, his girlfriend left him because he plays too much fate Grand order" which comes from another known troll. I don't have time to troll, so I came here to ask a couple questions.

I checked out PC builds on YouTube, and it seems like it's doable. But at the same time, I like the portability and being able to take it around. I really wouldn't want to sink like 1500 bucks into a build only to mess something up. This was just easier, and I got it on black Friday at bestbuy.

i don't get the portability thing, you can take any build around, or build into an ITX case like i did for a build, its about the size of an original X1.

at any rate, you'll probably want to swap out the power supply in your prebuilt because they usually put s***ty ones in there and that can f*** your s*** up

Lol once again. I'm really new to this stuff. I figured pre built laptop's couldn't really be messed with? And like I said, the girlfriend will be taking it to work from time to time. So it was just easier to do this. I don't have any illusions of playing games at 4k with 60 fps in a laptop, but I figured I wouldn't have too many issues with games like CSGO or pubg.
