Oculus Quest 2 and gaming laptop

Level 2

I’m currently looking for a gaming laptop that’s around $700-$1000 for using oculus quest 2 to play Steam VR game. Does anyone has recommendations for laptops? I don’t play it too often but may wants to play some games. It doesn’t need to be high quality, as long as it can run it and not lag or make me feel uncomfortable… thank you

You will not get a so-called gaming laptop for $700-1,000 that will play PCVR SteamVR games like HLA or MOH imho.  Probably more like $2,000-2,500.  You might find a decent desktop gaming pc for around $1,500 and this is going to be a much better way to go since it is upgradeable.  Otherwise, just do like most Q2 users do and enjoy  your  Q2's standalone mobile VR.

Right now I'm on the verge of buying a new PC.

I've always built my own up until now but in some instances it's cheaper to specify a pre-built from the same people you would otherwise buy the individual components from. You can usually customise the spec to your exact requirement.


The other factor is availability of some components, Scan in the UK for example don't have 3080 cards in stock but they do if you're specifying one within a pre-built.


There's a satisfaction to building your own but right now I think I'll be going with the in-stock option which also appears to be a slightly cheaper route. You'll probably have to look at what the options are in your country and with your favoured component supplier before deciding for yourself.
