    Are you doing 2D or 3D? I've used Unity on my Dad's 2014 iMac 21.5" with a 1.4 GHz processor and it ran fine. I only did some student projects though, and they were all 2D.

    It it will run on almost anything it really depends on the complexity of what you are doing as to how much performance you need, but tha should be absolutely fine, if it hasn’t got an ssd or fusion drives you may be a little disappointed in boot up and loading times though.

    Thank you for reply. So i check the site and it doesn't say anythinj about an ssd or fusion drive. The price is about over $1000.
    How much power should i get if i want it to perform the best way for Unity and Blender to do 2D, 3D games and animations?
    Thanks
