I suggest you read the system requirements: https://www.scirra.com/manual/6/system-requirements

These days pretty much any system you buy with at least Windows 7 and new-ish hardware is probably going to be fine.

Just make sure you have a dedicated GPU.

Hi,

I worry about whether Construct 3 can run on a computer installed with Windows XP.

@BoyHK - I remember someone asked this question before, but I can't remember who.

As far as I recall, someone answered that C2 & most probably C3 may not support Windows XP in some cases. But it can be installed, it just won't work as stable as Windows 7 up.

You really should get Windows 7 or newer. Windows XP is well past it now.

- it doesn't get security updates so you will be vulnerable to security flaws
- Chrome has dropped support for XP/Vista so you will no longer get Chrome updates
- you can't use/test Edge or Windows Store apps (need Windows 10 for that)
- Construct 2 can't encode AAC files on XP/Vista
- graphics drivers are often old/buggy/unavailable
- no good 64-bit support in the OS
- by now we probably won't fix any C2 bugs that only occur on XP (although I don't think there are many)
- although I can't say anything for sure right now, I cannot guarantee that C3 will run on XP/Vista

Seriously, don't even consider XP or Vista now. It's like buying Windows 95 in 2010.

Im also looking for a small cheap laptop for construct on the move.

Does the requirement to have dedicated GPU still stand???.

All of the recent intel i series and m series chips on laptops have half decent SOC GPU included.

Sure you won't be running Overwatch at 200 Fps but wouldn't they more than suffice for anything 2D browser related?

Intel graphics are crap, but a bit less crap than they used to be. I think it will be OK without a dedicated GPU on modern hardware. Dedicated GPUs are much better, but they tend to only come with more expensive laptops.
