The laptop that I was using to code and test the games I’ve been working on has died, may it RIP. As such I’m looking into buying a new one primarily for developmemt, not much hardcore gaming per se. I’m interested to know what hardware I should prioritise when purchasing this laptop.
My current belief is that I should get a high quality and clocked CPU, high clocked RAM, decent storage space (a terabyte is probably the most I’ll use) with a lightning fast SSD to minimise load times (NVEA compatible, preferably).
I’m unsure whether a beefy graphics card is ‘required’, as I’ll primarily be testing in low-res maps. I’m guessing a 4K display is handy to future-proof in case I work on a larger, quality project but would that also require a ridiculous graphics card?
If anyone has ideas for something I’ve missed, feel free to say so.
