Ok,this may take a while to explain…I would like to get into the VR scene using a laptop
I travel a lot and have lots of downtime in hotels…so I would like to have a laptop that can run VR games (doesn’t have to be flight sim related).
Can anyone suggest what type of laptop is needed, with the appropriate level of graphic cards and inside accessories needed to be able to run some VR games (doesn’t have to be flight sim related).
Also what is a good VR headset right now…Is Occuls Rift still the one to get? Or are we still to early to see a leader…
Would like a descent system and I realize I will have to spend money. I would like to order this from a computer store (website) and I live in Canada…so a Canadian site would be appreciated.
canadacomputers.com or newegg.ca would be the top two web stores I recommend. I buy from CC in-store locally typically, but have bought online too. Newegg I have made multiple purchases through - but they are now a multi-vendor store like Amazon, so I would suggest selecting “from Newegg only” on the filters when browsing first. The other vendors can be good, but you may not get the same availability or lead time as from Newegg’s own warehouses.
Just to be clear, the Oculus Quest is a completely stand-alone system, as in, you can’t play PC or any other console games on it. It is essentially a console of its own, and uses a stripped down version of Android (the phone OS) and a few of the Oculus VR titles are ported to it. It’s not out yet, but is a good ‘all in one’ option as it doesn’t need an expensive PC. Not great if you want to play flight sims in VR though.
Here’s a good summary of all the VR options as of today:
