I am currently in the market for a laptop and I am looking for some help.
What laptop should I be looking at for game programming? If you can't recommend a specific model, what component should I be looking at CPU, GPU, RAM, or storage.
I plan to get into 3D programming very shortly and I want to start messing around with OpenGl, DirectX, and Unity. I currently use SFML, and plan to incorporate OpenGl with it.
Should I stay away from Windows 8 laptops, I heard they are not development friendly but I want to know what you think.
I know game development is better suited on a desktop computer, but I want something on the go to increase productivity. In terms of price I would prefer something under $500, but I understand if that can be a problem.
* Feel free to move this to the appropriate section.*
