I decided to pick up a more powerful laptop. I have my “daily” travel laptop…which is a light and slim Asus Zenbook, but it only has an MX150 GPU in it.
So I spotted this deal on an MSI Raider GE63 and jumped on it. My total cost after the rebate and $50 off for signing up for the newsletter will be $1299 - I feel a good deal for the specs:
- 15.6" IPS screen 144Hz (1920 x 1080)
- Intel i7 8750H (2.2GHz)
- NVidia RTX 2070 (8GB)
- 256GB NVMe
- 1TB HDD
I was specifically looking for something with a DisplayPort or MiniDP to use with my Reverb (whenever I get a replacement) and I think this setup should be enough to push the pixels in most VR applications. Not as good as my 2080Ti desktop, but it should be OK for some on the road VR stuff.
