Best Computers for Game Development and Making Games

In order to create games with a computer, a computer has to have a level of power that is greater than an average school computer.  The reason is that a game developer is often processing a lot of information and video at once.    For value, we generally recommend going a PC route over a Mac computer.    As for specs the minimum to look at in the laptop world and still be under the 1000 dollar price point is an i7 intel based computer with 16gb of ram.  This HP Pavilion laptop fits this spec.  That being said and to be a few more years future proof we recommend this Toshiba Dynabook with 32gb of ram.
