I tried looking up a laptop on the oculus site, but it maker (lenovo) doesnt make that laptop anymore.  So, I went to costco's website and found the laptop below.  I'm totally new to VR, I want to use it for flight sim practice (x-plane and condor).  Would a laptop with the following specs do the job or not?  Any helpful comments would be greatly appreciated.

Does it list the ports available?
Rift S needs a DP/MiniDP directly connected to the GPU and a USB3.0 (min) port.
Original Rift needs HDMI Port directly connected to the GPU and preferably 3xUSB3.0 ports.
If the Intel chipset graphics are connected to the display outputs, and cannot be disabled, neither HMD would work correctly.
