Hello everyone,

While developing my Game with UDK I expericenced that my Laptop isn’t as good for the Development as I thought.
Now I’d like to ask you what Laptop is good for Development and where to buy it. ( I live in Germany )
I also like to know if there is any “Toys” for Developers, means some things which can help to make the development process a bit more fun ( e.g. graphics tablet etc. ).

Hope to get answers. :)

Greetz,
iTG.

I bought my notebook here: www.notebookguru.de
(check also www.one.de).
You need to give more details on your requirements.
My notebook ist big (18”), heavy und not very usefull with battery. For me the main requirement was to be able to transport the notebook between 3 locations, so i didn’t need it as a “mobile” device. And it worked well.

Well, it should be quite fast. I need it for Game Development in UDK.
UDK requires :

  • 2.0+ GHz multi-core processor
  • 8 GB System RAM
  • NVIDIA 8000 series or higher graphics card
