Will the engine work with this laptop?

Hi guys,

I’m looking to buy a new laptop to start working with game engines and maybe playing games (Not a heavy PC gamer), however my knowledge about computer hardware is fairly limited, so far I have encountered the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 at a price which I can afford at. I’m thinking of getting the 4k display one, here is a link to it http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7548-laptop/pd?ref=PD_Family

I am also open to other suggestions too.

Thank you

The graphics card is going to bite you on this one. There is an optional R7 M270 upgrade, but that is also under powered for UE4. I would recommend looking at an ASUS ROG or MSI GE series laptop. I have a ROG, and I’m quite happy with it. You can get one with a Nvidia GTX 960M GPU for around $1000.00 on Amazon. http://amzn.to/1EkRd2s

Nothing like a dedicated PC. Like he said…the video card is gonna get you.

But it will probably run Unity really well.

Y50/Y40 for Lenovo, best deal for the price under $1000

If possible, always get a desktop. They are cheaper, upgradable and more powerful.

There are, of course, plenty of reasons why you might want a laptop instead. :slight_smile:
