Could this "pocket-pc" be powerful enough for Construct3
GPD Pocket

It would be nice to be able to make games where ever and when ever... :)

That one seems a bit too tiny to get any actual work done.

I'm using a Surface pro 4. Big screen, and working with Touch/Stylus only works well. There are similar cheaper devices if it's too pricey. But having touch directly on the development device is awesome especially if you're doing mobile games, to try the games directly.

C2/C3 is surprisingly usable even without keyboard/mouse. Just using on screen keyboard for expressions etc.

Big plus, is also ability to draw your art on the device, with the stylus.

Game development isn't very convenient with phone or tablet, but It might work with that kind of tiny laptop.. I'd prefer something that fits in to pocket... I have new xps15 with touch screen, but I don't carry it with me...

@tunepunk thanks for the tip. Maybe surface is mobile enough.

Yeah that seems more like a device that will do.
I think as long as you stay with an Intel or AMD chip you will be fine.
If you want to go with Construct 3, make sure that it can run WebGL2.0 and the gpu is not in the 4% blacklisted ones.

@Havok I also think that it's important to be x86 based system. Other mobile processors are definitely uncertain. Don't know about the gpu though...

This should help.
https://www.khronos.org/registry/webgl/ ... sion=2.0.1
Try getting a demo on the device and go to that site...it should tell you what you need to know.
