Which laptop for Factorio ?

Post by kdeclerck » Wed Nov 20, 2019 1:06 pm

Which laptop config do you guys recommend for playing Factorio ?

I am considering a 17 inch laptop with i7 CPU, 16GB Ram and a dedicated (GTX1650) graphical card.

Any suggestions about above ? Are these overkill or do I need some extras on graphics card or so ?

I want to grow to a giant base ...

The graphics card will be fine unless it has 4k resolution, for 1080p you could easily go for something cheaper if you only care for the factorio performance.
For the CPU, stay away from low power or ultra low power models if possible, the higher the base frequency the better.

And you don't really care the number of cores past 4. Prefer 4 very fast cores vs 16 slow cores.
