Time organization

With the portable console it is much easier to take time to play, without ending up consuming half a day in front of the screen. So if you have obligations, if you study or work, but you like to play for a while when you have free time, much better with a laptop than with a desktop one. The normal thing is that the game ends up lengthening, but not to the point of forgetting everything else, it is much easier to cut and move on to something else.

We have both (laptop and desktop) and we only try to turn on the desktop on weekends. While during the week, we kill the bug with the laptop. And beware, there are many weekends that we do not turn on the desktop either, but because we take the opportunity to dedicate the time it deserves to the laptop.

Exclusive Games

The reality is that, at least in our case, or there are games that are worthwhile, or why buy a portable or desktop console. But it is that when Nintendo Switch came out with its Zelda Breath of the Wild exclusively, we did not even have to think about it. And it is no exception, there are tons of great games that is that even if you prefer a desktop console, they are only available on a laptop, like a few of the Super Mario and Mario Kart sagas, Hades, Octopath Traveler, Xenoblade Chronicles 2

We believe that in this sense, the Nintendo Switch is one step ahead of the rest of the best portable consoles . Although beware, the Wii U, the PSVita or the GPD XD Plus, they also have very interesting things. But in the end, the big non-exclusive releases try to be on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. And on the other hand, it would be strange if a good game came out on Vita and Wii U, but not on Switch.

You can play from anywhere

As a concept, a desktop console requires deciding to allocate time to play. But a portable console can be used to liven up a time when you can’t do much. If for example you use public transport, you will know what we are talking about, and if you have recently taken a plane trip, much more.

What is the best portable console?

The truth is that if what you want is the best portable console for performance, we would not know what to tell you. But right now, for its catalog of games, there is nothing better than Nintendo Switch. Now, we must be aware of how this world of laptops evolves, because there are already a few portable android consoles that are beginning to offer additional features that must be taken into account.

So, better laptop than desktop?

We would never have wanted to say something like that, let’s not misunderstand. Desktop consoles are brutal, especially if like us you like to play multiplayer, or shooters, or FIFA. In other words, a laptop is never going to supply what you can get with a PS4 or an Xbox One.

What happens when there comes a time that either you have a lot of free time, or you have to consider other types of more individual and less competitive games. And this is where, although we had already had a laptop many years ago, we rediscovered the experience of laptops, in our case thanks to Nintendo Switch.
