    Sorry but this Dell laptop will not run a Rift S.  No mini DisplayPort and its TB3 usb-c is hardwired to its integrated intel gpu.

    You may be able to get a Quest with Link to work if you have a compatible dedicated gpu.  In general for laptops it should be a rtx2060 or better.

    If you want good VR get a decent desktop gaming pc imho.  Do your research and build it to a Recommended or better specs (not minimum) as outlined on the Oculus website.

    Custom built gaming desktop; i9 9900k (water cooled) oc to 5ghz, gtx 1080 ti, 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, PCI-E PCI Express to USB 3.1 Gen 2 card, Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz gaming monitor, Oculus Rift cv1 w/2x sensors, Vive Pro w/2.0 base stations/controllers, Quest w/Link and VD wireless (good/close 5Ghz wifi and PC with Ethernet cable to my Router).

    Do you have any recommendation for gpu?

    We were also consider to buy an Alienware graphics amplifier, so maybe is possible to run it from the amplifier.

    Does that make any sense in your experience?
