It’d be preferable if it was portable, and the whole reason I have this dilemma is that the price to performance on the Asus laptop is a bit more than a computer at the same specs, or around.

So then you need to decide what is more important to you, being able to carry a gaming system around or getting faster speed for same price, more reliability and upgrade ability.

You should get a solid state drive and a higher wattage power supply. A modular PSU would help with a neater system build and cooling in the case.
 
So this is one of the life's lessons, know what's more important to you, and the art of compromise.

Do you have actually plan of taking this machine out somewhere, use it at school etc. on a regular basis? No? then your preference has no concrete plan basis, go desktop.

When I was younger, I lust for a Civic Hatchback, I stopped at people's houses to admire the cars, but deep inside I didn't have a job, even if I did, wouldn't pay enough to buy the $&@#$ car, another desire with no concrete basis.
