Nope. You need more RAM and a better CPU. Desktops are better because of processing power to cost ratio. A Desktop capable or running 1v8 with set you back around $1100. I still haven't heard of anyone with a laptop being able to run 8 cows yet, Though I did some research with a mate the other day and I think we found one with great specs for $2400, That's including installing an aftermarket liquid cooler to save frying it.
