I'll be getting a laptop for school so browsing, school, and 2D side-scrolling games are my main priorities for the laptop. I've never owned a laptop so I am out of the loop with where the tech is at for the most part.
I only care about performance for modern 2D side-scrollers such as:
  • Blasphemous
  • Slain
  • Valfaris
  • Dead Cells
  • Hollow Knight
  • Salt and Sanctuary
  • Darkest Dungeon
  1. Will most modern laptops generally be able to play these types of games without issue or will I need gaming specific hardware?
  2. What kind of GPU would work best? I have limited knowledge with laptop hardware but I'm seeing the MX150, Iris XE, and Radeon Vega options. Will these GPUs be enough?
  3. The Asus Vivobook line looks appealing and I've seen them recommended for similar use. Would this be a good option?
