I am a student that likes to use Unity 3D for game development!
I am a sole developer and I have to work on Sounds, Coding, Animations, Models, Art everything to make a game!
But I can't drag my desktop to college now can I? I need a laptop!
But... Which one do I need?
It doesn't matter about the price or shape or weight just how useful it will be!
What it needs is to be powerful (moderately) I need to be able to make games, but of course I need to be able to test them without the risk of losing frames, I also need to be able to plug in my Drawing Tablet for artwork.
I don't know much about the things inside the computer as long as it works well I am fine.
What would be useful:
Lots of memory (At least 1TB+)
It needs to load websites and scripts FAST!
It needs to not crash every second like my last one...
It needs to not have a low battery life, at least 4 hours or more, I cant have it running out in the middle of class now can I?
Built in camera to record my face for streams.
Built in MIC (I don't want to plug earphones in unless I am in class )
I don't know much about processors like I said so it would be useful if you could help me out on what I need to do to get a laptop that can code make sounds and artwork ect...
What I will use the laptop for:
Streaming on Twitch! (I like to stream and have fun there to show my developing)
Watching YouTube (Like some nice music in the background of coding)
Making sounds and music for my games
Digital Artwork with a Tablet
Modeling (Blender or Maya)
Like I said Price is no issue a powerful PC that can run multiple applications at the same time with a camera and mic already built in.
I would likely have
Unity, Maya/Blender, a program to develop sounds (haven't found one yet), Krita(Or other digital art programs), something to make animations (haven't found that either) all ran at the same time on my laptop.
that's about it I hope you can help
(I think im using Unity but I may switch to Unreal/Cryengine)
I'm also British so please send links where it wont cost me all my money for the transportation of the object and hopefully the website has an option where I can see the price in GBP (£)
I need it for college projects and when I travel, I cant bring a desktop computer with a massive motherboard on a train or a plane, or in the middle of a class drag a massive computer in. :D
