Aug 4, 2014
1. What is your budget?

15-18 inch

On the notebook I don't care. But when I plug in a monitor I want 4k.

2D and low poly 3D game development
Low poly 3d modelling
Programming in general (16gb ram at least)

Not more than 1 TB

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?


12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.

I've owned only 1 notebook so far, a 12 inch Thinkpad X.. something. It was great but it's from around 2012, so it's really slow and heavy compared to modern notebooks.

At work I've had HP, Dell, and others. Never had any problems, but they resided in the docking station most of the time.

13. What country do you live in?


14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.

If possible it should come without OS pre-installed.
It should also be light and thin.
