The system requirements are quite high, and a gaming laptop with a recent graphics processing unit is required for successfully playing Space Engineers. GeForce RTX 2070 or better mobile GPU is needed.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a laptop. 8gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 25gb of storage space is required, which has to be noted if you install many games.
