New Indie game designer

Good morning :slight_smile: or afternoon as the case may very well be lol I’m looking for helpful advice in getting setup as an entry level Indie game developer. Keeping in mind that I am currently on a VERY strict budget (I’d buy one of those $700 gamer pcs/laptops if possible), I was surfing and saw this product, HP 15-cb002ne Intel Core i7 12 GB RAM 1 TB HDD 15-inch Laptop - Shadow Black Intel Core- i7 7700 HQ Processor
15-inch FHD IPS anti-glare WLED-backlit 1920 x 1080
4 GB nVidia GeForce GTX 1050
Windows 10 64bit
Dual HP Speakers, HP Audio Boost, and custom tuning by the experts at B&O PLAY

I’v used Lenovo, Dell, and HP laptops in the past and I’ve had a very good experience with HP, then Lenovo. I absolutely refuse to use Dell, for reasons of my own. I’d prefer those who’v already published a few games advise me and other entry levels like myself.

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:
