PC or laptop for gaming?

I think ideally PC is more suitable for the gaming considering you can add remove items more swiftly without having much upgrade issues compared to the laptop. 

I agree completely - trying to upgrade a laptop is a pain especially if the parts were fused to the motherboard/other laptop components, it will be impossible to upgrade it yourself unless you take it to a certified dealer.

I was looking at the Lenovo's L series laptops and they seem to have limit on the RAM. They only allow the 16GB RAM limit whereas some of the other expensive models allow upto 32GB. I think this is one reason people go for desktop for this.

It depends because on some laptops you can install bigger RAM and other components such as storage while some have the components fused to the motherboard so there's no way to upgrade them yourself.

Had my own hand built PC's in the past, but right now I'm on a brand-new ASUS TUF FX505DV laptop as it was, and still it, a possibility of me working off site, so a new PC build wasn't the best idea. I'm loving this thing so far though, it's all the power one realistically needs for 1080p gaming (4K on a laptop is pointless, the screen is too small) and it wasn't to expensive. I can play The Outer Worlds at max setting and the FPS never dips below 40, but it's usually hovering about 60. Here the specks if anyone is interested.

Back to the point. It wasn't long ago gaming laptops were overpriced, underpowered rubbish, but I think that's starting to change.

I think Lenovo is coming out with some really good amount of the RAM for their high end gaming machines.
