In 4 weeks I will have my exams; after that I want to do Game Development.
I have found a school and found out everything that I have to have.
Most things weren't a problem, headphones, external hdd, the basic stuff.
However, you also need to provide your own laptop.
I got a list saying what kind of specs the laptop should have, but it wasn't really.. clear...
Intel I7 8Gb ram 500Gb HDD 2Gb video memory 1920*1080 screen Approximatly 1000,-
Now, I've been saving up a little bit, got about 300,- euros now.
My parents will pay 400,- for the laptop, and the school will pay 10-20% of the price too.
I'm getting a lot of pocket money; 85,- euros a month.
This means I'll have atleast 1200,- euros, and I am going to work in the vacation too, because money is always handy.
Now, I know a little bit about computers, and I made a list of specs that I want atleast:
Generation 4 I7, Octocore at ~3.5 ghz. 16Gb DDR3 ram at 1600Mhz 500Gb HDD 120Gb SSD 1920*1080 screen 3Gb video memory, preferably Nvidia because I am very used to that. Windows 7 I dont want a HP, Dell or Alienware, as I really dont like those laptops. Preferably I want a black laptop that is an ASUS.
I don't mind if what I can get is slightly worse or better for the money that I have.
Again, I have atleast 1200,- and can probably add another 300,- to it if needed.
The laptop will be mostly used for Game Development; Unity, Maya, Photoshop, and I want to go the route of Programmer later on.
I also want to play a few games on it; Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, maybe even Tomb Raider 2013.
Can someone recommend a good laptop?
