Seeking Laptop Recommendations for 3D Unreal Game Development

Hello everyone,

I’m new to 3D game development and planning to start working with Unreal Engine. I’m in the market for a laptop that can handle the demands of 3D game development smoothly. Since I’m just starting out, I’d love to get some advice from the community on what laptops would be a good fit for my needs.

Here are a few specifics I’m looking for:

  • Budget: Around $1500, but I’m flexible if it’s worth the investment.
  • Performance: Capable of handling Unreal Engine without major lag or crashes.
  • Portability: Preferably something not too bulky since I might need to carry it around.
  • Longevity: A laptop that won’t be obsolete in a couple of years.
  • Other Features: Good display quality, decent battery life, and reliable build quality.

What I’ve considered so far:

  • Acer Predator Helios 300
  • MSI GF65 Thin
  • ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14

I’m open to any suggestions or insights you might have on these models or any other laptops you think would be a great fit for a beginner in 3D Unreal game development. Your recommendations and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!
