Laptop for work, games, and VR?
I just started a new job, and with that I'll probably need to buy a laptop to use when I work remotely. I have a gaming PC that I built in 2013, with the exception of the GTX 1070 that I got last year. Ideally what I'd like to do is replace the desktop with an ultraportable laptop that I would use for work and then take the GTX 1070 and put it into an external graphics enclosure so I could play games and use my Oculus Rift.
Right now it seems like the best option are a Razer Blade Stealth paired with a Razer Core, or an XPS 13 paired with some other enclosure. I'm concerned about some of the negative reviews I've read about Razer's build quality and support, but it has a USB A port on the laptop, and the Rift sensors don't seem to like being plugged into an enclosure. The XPS seems to be slightly better liked, and Dell seems to be better liked as a company, but it only has a USB C on the laptop, and I'm not sure if the Rift sensors would like going through a dongle. Also, if I went with the XPS there's not an obvious external GPU enclosure to go with.
Thoughts or advice?
