Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hello folks,

I'm looking at buying a budget laptop and I'd like it to run C2 so I can go on using the software and learning whilst I'm away from my main PC.

The laptop specs are:-

intel core i5-5200u cpu
8gb ram
1tb HDD
13.3in screen (1920,1080)

(I'm not sure what gpu it has as it doesn't seem to be listed)

Those specs look fine, but what is the graphics card??? <- this is the determining factor :(

I have it running on a 7 year old laptop with zero issues.

GPU is pretty important.

What's the Make/Model No.?
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Any new pc you buy should be able to run C2 regardless of the the graphics card imo. Old used pcs can have graphics cards with buggy drivers that you can't update, so the browsers use a slower rendering method. However new pcs have new drivers that are up to date and support everything the browsers need to use the most optimal rendering method.

okay I just found out the gpu is intel HD graphics 5500

yeah I know integrated graphics suck but its as far as the budget will stretch and I won't be doing any gaming on it.
