    Think I'll pass on that

    Why pass on such an efficient way of transport?

    Why do you want a handbag?

    stop being a lazy c*nt. Jk mate

    Just take your desktop. Don't waste money on a sh*tty ass laptop. You don't be doing much gaming tbh if you want to socialise. My sister was a fairly big pc gamer but literally gave up after 1 month.
    That is true, i know at the end i might get sick of playing games.

    Gaming and laptop just don't go together in the same sentence.

    It's not a case of what your laptop can play, it's the fact that it's a laptop 😂

    You're going to kill me for this but I switched from pc to ps4 because i only wanted to play a select few games were available on console anyway. I didn't really want to play any PC exclusive games anymore, dota 2 just got boring.

    chose a console because it was cheap (250 for the cnsole, 4 games, a controller and a headset) and i knew i would get bored of gaming in the next year or so.

    Yah I feel you. Start of college this year, my gaming buddy started to game less and less because he got a job. I realised that my gaming habbits had to stop so I got a job and realised that I spent way too much time gaming.

    I think regardless of what you bring you'll likely find that you don't actually get sick of playing games, you just find yourself preferring to do other things that involve being social, going out etc. Before I started Uni I played games a lot, as soon as I started Uni my video gaming fell off a cliff edge (but I did do it a little, especially during the holidays). I didn't really miss playing games, now I do a bit but I don't usually find the time between work and everything else!

    You already want to be more social, that's a good start. Hopefully you'll end up in a flat with social people (or at least people who want to be social) because if you do then you'll find being more social very easy (like I did). If you don't, you might have to put in a bit of effort yourself but it'll be worth it. Basically, as long as you want to be social, it'll be easy to be social. Get stuck into freshers week, nights outs and a few of the various societies and you'll literally just not want to play games. It sounds hard to believe/weird (which I also thought at the time) but it just happens.

    I would recommend just taking your PC. Failing that, just get a fairly cheap laptop which will suffice for work/general stuff but not for most games. Don't bother with a gaming laptop (they're not worth the money).

    I wouldn't take your PC. it'll be a pain to get there and back again.. there's no guarantee you'd have space for it and will be an easy excuse not to socialise or do work. a laptop is pretty essential for uni i;d say.

    because i heard its just going to be a distraction ... So if i get a gaming Laptop, it will be less as i cant play most of the high end games, which makes me board and hopefully stop me for playing games and be more social ... but some people said it stupid but i think its a good idea. but i might end up selling it so i can buy a gaming laptop.. but im not so sure now xD
    Buy a chromebook, you wont be able to play any games on it and it's dirt cheap.

    It won't stop you playing games, you'll just play more indie games where they don't bother with graphics that suck your hardware's soul out. If you've already got a desktop and are okay with lugging it to uni, just take it.
