DinoPC Slayer 15.6″ GTX 870M and Magma Wrath GTX 770

Rating: 8.0.

What kind of gaming system can you get for £1,099 inc vat? Perhaps you are contemplating a desktop replacement style laptop but are wondering how the performance will compare? With this in mind we approached UK system builder DINOPC and they built a desktop and a laptop system at the same price point – the Slayer 15.6″ GTX 870M and the Magma Wrath GTX 770.

Many times when KitGuru get a desktop system to review, the system builder won’t factor in the additional cost of a monitor, keyboard or gaming mouse. When building the desktop system for this article today DINOPC had to factor in the cost of all these ‘extras’. We could argue that many people will already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse from a previous build, but equally so they could be old and in need of replacement.

You always pay more for portability and we know the desktop system will likely be faster, but will it be significant?
