- must be able to perform programming tasks easily
- preferably lightweight so I can take anywhere with ease
- around $550
- And it has to look really nice

Pressed the wrong button, gave you a free medal! Might as well add to this post in the mean time.

If you're going coding, you need a high-res screen. Don't worry about nice colors, ips panel displays, or something ridiculously compute-powerful. Just get something within your price range with 1080p and if you can, dedicated graphics.

I don't think those are coming in under 400 euros, also 14 inches is a bit big. I've got nothing against Lenovo though, my current laptop is made by them - a cheap AMD A10 thing. I figure I can build my battle box for 250 euros including a Pentium processor and 120GB SSD, so that seems the best option now.

Got a link to what you mean? I'm specifically looking at anything under 400 euros and under 14 inches.

That territory seems to be almost exclusively inhabited by Atom, with a couple of Celerons.

I recall running Age of Mythology on a GMA 950 Smiley

The other alternative would be to forget the portable laptop and build a gaming box with a cheap Pentium (or even desktop Celeron). If I think I can get away with an Atom GPU a desktop Celeron GPU would "like totally" blow it away Smiley

And if the integrated GPU graphics are too laggy, I can just stick in my GT430 I have lying around. Or really go for broke and buy a GTX 750Ti...

wow! you clearly know much, much more than me about finance and economics!   Grin Grin

I kind of tried to make it as "realistic" as possible in the beginning, with all kinds of investments, realistic loan options, even real-time stock market rates (lol), but quickly realised that's just crazy and a sure road to madness ;-)

And you would have a ton of options for each loan, investment, purchase etc. etc. and spend more time choosing than playing...

anyway, I'll wait and see if anybody is even interested in this kind of game...

thanks again and if you wish you could give it a star or two, it looks so lonely without any rating...

  • change: Battle suit now also protects against alien-goo
  • fix: rooms with exits being lit to soon
  • fix: hopefully fixing the leaderboard uploads to multiple boards...

Yes I see what you mean about the playability, good point.
Rather than make all debt have such punitive interest rates of 2% per month, perhaps you could ration it like the way banks do in real life using some kind of maximum debt servicing ratio or loan to valuation ratio. So you can't borrow any more when your interest expense is more than say 35% of your annual income (the definition of mortgage stress in some countries) or when your LVR is more than 80 or 90%.
Just some ideas.
It's a really clever game, I like it. I'm doing research into finance and economics and often think about these things. You must be a business student as well?
It's funny how you say that having lots of cheap debt would make the game too easy, since that is what has happened in real life with zero interest rates and quantitative easing in most of the world's biggest economies. House and share prices have ballooned significantly, arguably buoyed by cheap debt.

Hi CommanderKeith,

thanks for your great feedback! I am glad you liked it, but you seem to know a lot more about investments than me  Smiley

I "only put cash as the 'score' visible at the top" to make it simpler, when you tap the score you get more details, even a whole "balance sheet" with IN an OUT per month...

and the very high rate for borrowing money is there to make it a bit less easy and yes there should be a whole lot more investment options, but too much would make it less playable, so I have to find a balance...

thanks again.

I found this today. It's a great explanation of the diamond-square algorithm to generate random terrain. It's really awesome, compared to all the other diamond-square explanations out there!
