I have a laptop and I'm thinking about getting oculus go. Do I need anything else for it to work?

    You'll need a smartphone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher, or iOS 10 or higher. It's only for the initial setup and browsing the store from the Oculus app. After the setup, you don't need anything else.

    As above post. You have the choice of the Go or Quest as standalone headsets. No pc required unless you are putting things onto the headset and a data transfer cable will be enough. The Go has 3dof and one hand controller whilst the Quest has 6dof and 2 hand controllers. The Quest is better for gaming imo.
    A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.
