like the title says,i'm on my way too learning how too develop games and am going too need a decent laptop too be able too take my studies with me and help keep me sane on the bus ride back.
i'm on a budget of about $700,so that makes looking for what i need a little more interesting if not also a headache.

i was able too find this thing online and wanted a second opinion

'Game development' encompasses a lot of areas.
What software will you be using? That has a huge impact on what the machine specs should be.

not sure what specific engine i'm gonna be working with,but it will most likely be based around ones that work with 3d models like unity/cry/unreal and coding things too work within the 3d engine
