Budget laptop hardware

I’m getting a laptop and I need to know if the hardware is usable for me to learn ue4.
Hardware:
Intel Core i7-6500U
NVIDIA GeForce 940MX
12 GB DDR4
1 TB 5400 rpm
Windows 10

Ps: For more information on the laptop is a Pavilion 15-au010wm
And also I know that a desktop is better but most of the time I’m on the go.

There are laptops for 900 with better GPUs.
At least get a GTX 1050Ti

I’d suggest getting a 960M or 1050ti as the minimum GPU, and you really need a 1080p display. 1366 x 768 isn’t going to cut it. It’s usable, but a very poor experience.

Update:
Found a laptop on hp website and after customizing it, this is what I got.

Intel Core i5-7300HQ
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
1920 x 1080 screen
1 TB 7200 rpm

So I go down on the processor but in return I gone up on resolution, graphics and hdd speed.
All this in my budget range of 600 to 800 dollars.
Laptop at hp website. ( HP Pavilion Power - 15t Quad w/ 2GB gfx touch optional ) for more information

I’ve had a very good experience with Dell’s Inspiron 7567. It’s slightly above your budget, but the GTX 1050 Ti in it is a good 30% faster than the GTX 1050 from the HP one. Plus the SSD makes a very, very noticeable difference when using Visual Studio.

I have recently bought an Acer F5-573G-577K and it is okay. i5-6200U, GTX950 4GB, RAM 8GB (was 4 by default), 96 GB SSD (a bit small), 1 TB HDD, 1920x1080. What I really love is the low heat generated by the CPU and the GTX card! btw I started to use a simple fan-pad in the summer… it was around 650 EUR + Win10.
I’m not an artist, mostly dealing with C++ programming, AI, and testing, you might need a better one if want to edit huge complex scenes.

Unless someone knows a website that lets me build a laptop the way I want it to be or a upgradable laptop, which is hard enough to find, I’m going to keep looking for a GTX 1050 TI. Thank you

The Lenovo 320Sis a good one, especially for those on a budget. Also U can Get more information here related with other brands.

Buy whatever you want but don’t buy (DELL) regrets.

Lenovo y520 i5 7300hq gtx 1050ti
good for ue4??

RAM and storage info? Screen resolution?

8gb ram 1tb 128 ssd **1920 x 1080 **

16 GB RAM is minimum for a smooth experience but I recommend even more. 128 GB SSD barely will hold OS and common files, 240 GB minimum is recommended. 1 TB Hard disk is OK, but that will go fast as hell. I would use the money to buy a desktop instead, there are cheaper CPUs and cheaper cards, and the freedom with the remain, not to mention the most important: heat, because a notebook will suffer great amount of heat depending on what it is doing, and thats not good for the internal components, namely: hard disk.
