    No DP or TB3 so you are out of luck with a Rift S.  You may be able to use an Oculus Quest with pc link but right now your gpu is not supported.  It may be supported later, but who knows?  At least you would be good for standalone VR.

    Probably your best PCVR option with your low end gaming laptop (by todays standards) is to buy an inexpensive Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headset with hdmi (most are hdmi, you just need to check this out).  These can be pretty inexpensive, esp. used on ebay.  You may also consider buying a used Oculus Rift cv1 w/2x sensors but this option will not be as portable.

    Both options should allow you to play most basic VR games.  If you get hooked on VR you should consider going to a nice good gaming desktop in the future imho.

    Custom built gaming desktop; i9 9900k (water cooled) oc to 5ghz, gtx 1080 ti (from my old AGA), 32 gb 3000hz ram, 1 tb ssd, 4 tb hdd.  Asus  ROG Maximus xi hero wifi mb, StarTech 4 port/4 controller sata powered usb3.0 pcie card, Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz gaming monitor, Oculus Rift cv1 w/2x sensors, Vive Pro, Vive Cosmos, Vive Wireless.
