    Hi,

    I´m trying to build a sandbox with a couple of students and we are checking the characteristics it has to have. I´ve found the ACER Predator G6 Gaming Desktop – AG6-710-70013, which is a PC… but I believe I need to look for a LAPTOP, do you recommend me any model in particular?

    Thank you in advance,

    Does not need to be a laptop … the hardware will depend on how you want to use the installation, and while a laptop is easier if you’re moving it around, as the sandbox itself is pretty big, it really makes no odds. Much more important is the graphics capability. Basically get the best you can afford! That is often more easily upgraded in a PC than a laptop, and allows you to select NVIDIA rather than the laptop OEM kit.

    have fun – its a great resource when you have it

    If you are looking for the portability of a laptop you might consider a used Lenovo Y50-70. It has an Nvidia GTX960m GPU and its performance driving the sandbox is very good. I just checked eBay and used, they are going for about $600. The only downside from personal experience (I use the touch version on a daily basis) it is not the most robustly built laptop out there so if buying used, be aware of that. Also, make sure it has the GTX960 not the older GTX860 that goes for a hundred dollars less. My $0.02, keep or discard.

    For the moment we are trying with the a laptop with the following characteristics… But, we are not successful in getting good results. After calibration, we are just getting a blue screen. While on other older laptop we are getting at least the “level lines”
