    If you must then buy a used dell from https://www.dellrefurbished.com/ and look for a win 7 machine. I have a Win 7 machine to support an old scanner but it is never connected to the Internet.

    I meant the GTX 1050 TI as being something reasonable. A series 4000 intel CPU will run Middleton for laptops in TS19 at 20 odd frames per second but it very much depends on what content you want to...

    Look at the GPU, Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 for example has quite reasonable graphics performance. https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php and you want something with a higher score than a GTX 1050...

    A tablet running windows 10 will work but don't hold your breath. Middleton for laptops might be the only layout that will run.

    Use pev's attachment maker to add attachment points to the mesh. Then lights can be added and talk very nicely to a content creator and a pair of rotating wheels can be added slightly wider than the...

    TS19 has interesting lighting but you need to work to get it look right. TANE allows you to select content by author in the game, TS19 the latest beta does but not the released version. TS19...

    The only comment I'd make is for TS19 and TANE 2560x1440 is a lot more pixels to drive.

    1920 by 1080 I think is the size. Anything bigger and you need a liquid nitrogen cooled RTX 2080TI.

    I think the RTX 280 is wonderful but the SSD and hard drive will be slower than need be. If you look at new Dell gaming machines they have PCI NVE drives which are much faster.
