@BluePhaze

(Checks his pocket) ...

40 $ ... quite a nice start ... a start of the non-ending path towards 1000 bucks ...

@Whiteclaws I got my ASUS gaming Laptop and Alienware Area-51 (Water Cooled) gaming desktop for free :)

Then again at the time I was working at Microsoft and running some of the gaming blogs...

Definitely would get a windows based OS and not a VM just like @Ashley said.

Upgraded my gaming laptop to a MacBook Pro for better/easier App development and now Construct behaves strange, still useable but bugs out a fair bit.

No reason to use a top quality laptop for C2...
Working on a old crappy computer is a good way to make sure your game performs well on most setups :p

Yep, I agree with lemo. The lower quality your PC is, the better (within reason, of course).

In my previous job, I'd occasionally have to deal in low-end machines like this. You'll hear a lot of anecdotal evidence over which brand is best or worst (mostly worst).

Regarding low-end laptops, all the major brands manufacture comparable 14 or 15 inch models. In my opinion, they all perform about the same, so it just really just a matter of personal preference.

If your PC will mainly be used for production purposes (like producing games or graphics or whatever), I'd highly recommend a desktop rather than a laptop. I can generally get work done 1.5x faster on my desktop than on my laptop. Also, if you go this route, go for dual monitors if you can swing it.

For situations like this, Newegg is a handy site to find/compare products.zatyka2013-03-31 16:38:35

I am doing a bit of traveling recently so I purchased an ASUS vivobook x202E for $449. It runs construct 2 just fine and the bonus of the touch screen makes testing touch enabled apps that much nicer.

The 11.6 in screen version might not be right for you if you are not traveling much with it though.
