Is this a good laptop for Construct 2?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hello everyone! I'm new to using Construct 2 and I'm looking for a lightweight laptop use it while I travel. I've had my eye on the ASUS X205TA BK Signature Edition because it doesn't have the normal bloatware. I don't want anything too powerful because I want to make sure what I create works well on lower end devices as well. Are these specs good enough to run Construct 2 w/o a lot lag or do I need a RAM of 4GB on up? I'm open to any suggestions.


Windows 8.1 32-bit
Intel Atom Z3735F 1.33 GHz with Intel Burst Technology up to 1.83 GHz Processor
2GB DDR3L 1333 MHz RAM Memory
32GB eMMC Hard Drive

the ram is good enough that;s not the spec that going to slow this down. but the CPU is what is important and this one is pretty bad. C2 should work but there most likely will be lag and depending on the GPU you most likely wont be able to run your own game at 60FPS

That CPU doesn't look very powerful. I'd go for something 2 GHz+, but on the other hand if your games run well on that system it will probably run well everywhere!

Thanks for the quick replies. The only thing Amazon says about the GPU is that it has Intel HD Graphics with shared graphics memory. What kind of CPU and GPU should I be looking for?

To be honest I didn't even know they made laptops with such low specs ^^; I'd look elsewhere. I understand you want to make sure your games run on lower end devices, but this is pretty far below average.

@Tokinsom

Obviously you haven't been to Croatia, they sell the lame or lower WITHOUT OS for around 400USD. It's really sad actually.
The moderators are corrupt and ban for no reason, especially that condescending neckbeard asshole Kyatric. The forums are filled with fanboys.
