I have been using my older laptop working on my games more than my desktop lately for convenience but I am trying to justify buying a newer laptop and so far my arguments are pretty weak and my wife isn't having it.
I mostly enjoy making really retro style projects so 360x180 res with low quality scaling so not having enough power isn't really a concern.... most of my games run flawlessly on any computer or phone I have tried them on and even working with some others on projects pushing the C2 limits my current laptop still performs just fine. I am not using any high end tools for art or sound either mostly get by with paint/GIMP and famitracker/bfxr.
My only real arguments are wanting a longer battery life, nicer screen and maybe using a touch screen for artwork but the little I have played with a touch screen I don't think I would really use it. Does anyone have any recommendations on selling points to buying a new laptop for game making when I really don't NEED one? Or any suggestions on laptops to look at?
